Explore the tactile qualities of clay and create your own ceramics through practical instruction in a relaxed atmosphere. This open lab will provide one-on-one instruction for beginners to advanced artists. Focusing on pottery as a form of visual art, the classes will cover a number of topics and techniques, from basic wheel thrown pottery to hand built pottery to raku. Your creative ceramic pieces will then be glazed and fired for you to take home or give as a gift. Final pick-up date will be 12/14/17 between the hours of 10 AM and 12 PM, or upon an arranged appointment with Ira Jones, (209) 384-6369.
