In case of inclement weather: the outdoor space is shaded in the afternoon and evening and has a covering adequate to provide shelter from light rain. In case of a heavy rain storm and winds or thunderstorms; class will be rescheduled at the discretion of the instructor for the listed make-up date.

This four week class will cover a variety of ways to build vases via coil building and slabs, as well as some sculptural surface exploration. Learn how to construct playful forms in small segments and experiment with different shapes and handles. Students of all levels are welcome to join this class.

The outdoor class area will be available for students to use throughout the week during daylight hours. There will not be access to our basement studio at this time as we are working to build a better space. There will be some personal shelving space for each student to store clay tools and some work in process. Shelving dimensions are approximately: 17” x 10” x  24”.
