Location: West Elm Albany
Coming in January!
To Be Announced Soon
Adult Class. Developed as a 2 week intro intensive, you will develop a sense of clay construction through different techniques focused primarily on the table with handbuilding (slab, pinch and coil pot). Projects will vary, made as a group, making decorative pieces and gifts. Certainly there is much to plan ahead for gifts, Valentines Day, St. Patty's, Easter, Mothers Day. I love planning ahead for Spring!
Did you like making mud pies...or do you secretly squish
your hands in mud, bread dough and/or playdough? It’s okay if you do because I proudly admit I like it. Whether you want to have at it on the wheel or roll, coil or pinch clay to submission have we got some programs for you!
By the time I reached middle school I really wanted to learn the wheel. I loved it so much that my dad made me my first wheel and I owned a small kiln. During my time in Berkeley, CA I became a member to a really amazing community studio that forever influenced how well studios should run. Moving back to NYC I taught beginning potters so that after little over an hour they could walk away with a treasure thrown on the wheel. If the wheel seems intimidating, you prefer to sit at a table with clay, or legs and back might limit this activity, handbuilding has a huge place in my heart. It reigns with technical simplicity and exudes a charm not often found on the wheel.
