February 5, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until April 30, 2022
This 10-Week Adult Ceramics class is open to all levels (Beginning- Advanced) and will focus on the wood fire process. This involves using specific high-temperature clay and will culminate in a firing of RLCC’s “train” Wood kiln at our Fox studio location. During the lead-up to the firing, your instructor, Long-Term Resident Chris Watt will work with students and cover specific formal and aesthetic issues regarding wood firing. Specifically, we will cover techniques that encompass wheel-throwing and hand-building as well as using slips and glazes specific to the process to achieve desirable results. RLCC 10-week adult clay classes include one 25lb. bag of clay with the purchase of the class as well as access to our ‘open studio’ hours. These times occur during RLCC Gallery business hours when there are no other scheduled classes or events. Additional clay is available for purchase through RLCC, we do not allow outside clay into the studio. RLCC will be closed the week of March 13th, no class March 19.
Saturday, February 5th – April 23rd 1pm-4pm
