Clay Hand Building for the Absolute Beginner

Instructor: Vivian Parmenter

June 2 – July 14 (6 weeks, no class June 30)
Fridays, 9 am – 12 noon

Workshop Description:
No clay experience needed. Participants will learn how to create pieces of art using the fundamental clay methods and create pinch pots and forms using coils and slabs in conjunction with scoring and adding slip. You will learn how to gauge the different stages of clay: wet, leather hard, greenware, the fire ready stage and bisque. Once your piece is in the greenware stage, we will be discussing the different options on how to finish your piece using underglazes, glazes or acrylics.

Materials: Clay and Clay tools
For Cone 06 clay you can order clay to be delivered the first day of class. Email the Art Program Coordinator at heathhilary.mcrae@talgov.com once you register so she can let the supplier know – it is $25 for 1 bag of clay. and starter tool kits are an additional $15. Please order at least one week before the workshop begins or there is no guarantee you will have clay for the first day.

If you want to order your own tool kits they can be purchased online or in-store at Michaels, Hobby Lobby or Amazon. They do not carry the correct clay for our kilns – that needs to be ordered through TSC or you can order your clay through Jesse directly via Tally Clay Supply and pick up from him at Tally Clay Supply if you do not want it delivered to TSC.
