Description: Please Read
We will meet every Friday night at 6:30pm-9pm for 6 weeks from June 30th-July 30th, with open studio hours Saturday 11am-4pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm. ****I am out of town August 4th, so we will have our last class Sunday, July 30th. ****** Three students only! We will be throwing exclusively with porcelain on the wheel. You don't need experience with porcelain, just experience in wedging, general centering, and general ability to throw a few inches high. EXAMPLE CURRICULUM: Week 1: Introduction to the studio, a throwing demo. We get a feel for the skill level and throw a few pieces. Week 2: Trimming and optional underglaze. Then throwing again, drawing inspiration from history and contemporary artists. After this point, try to do all trimming during open studio. Week 3: Glazing. More throwing. Week 4: Optional luster firing. I have premium gold, white gold/silver color, and mother of pearl. Bring your own respirator! We will set up a table outside. More throwing if we have time. Week 5: Final projects, last day to make new work. Week 6: I am out of town Friday August 4th, so we will just have to celebrate Sunday July 30th ;) You will also have the following weekend open studio to glaze if needed, and pick up work. You will have full access to the studio space and use of the tools, including underglazes, heat gun, photography equipment, etc. CLAY IS PROVIDED. The three students will share dedicated and spacious shelf storage for all their work. Feel free to bring your own tools/ cone 6 glazes. Please be mindful to clean up well (after all, there are only three of you!) Set-up and clean-up time usually takes about 10-15 mins each. This is a newly renovated space close to the F,G,Q trains, as well as many buses. Address will be texted to you at the beginning of the semester. A high powered ventilation unit clears the air, and the unique water system keeps the studio clean. We fire to cone 6 oxidation, and also luster firings. Please note that this class is a learning and sharing space. It is NOT a membership space! Signing up for classes as a means of using it as a membership is not gonna fly (aka no production pottery). Please stick to the hours of operation. There are only 6 weeks, so 2 absences is missing a third of the class! More than 2 absences will result in your spot given up to someone on the waitlist, and no refunds. We are here to deep dive into the craft, better our skills, chat about movies and pets, and have fun! See ya!
