An Interplay of Ceramic Techniques & Ideas

CRN : 11267-241
« back to classes page

This course is designed for people who have experience with shaping clay and who wish to explore their imaginations and broaden their skills in the art and craft of ceramics.  The class encourages both independence and the interplay and incorporation of ideas and techniques of fellow ceramicists.  That is, we will learn from and teach each other.  We will also push ourselves in new directions and face failure together.  We will use methods of hand-building, wheel-throwing, surface-texturing, and their combination to create pieces of art of underlying functionality, pure aesthetics, or both.  Come to this class with your ideas and goals.  You already know what you can do.  Now do more.

The piece featured in the class image was created in a previous offering of An Interplay of Ceramic Techniques & Ideas by Maria Pope.

An additional class meeting for a Raku firing is included in the registration fee in addition to the listed sessions. This will be scheduled at a time and location to be determined following the last class meeting.

NOTE: This class is not eligible for fee remission for Ivy Tech employees due to limited capacity. Please see our CLL fee remission guidelines for more information.

OPEN STUDIO HOURS: This class will have open studio hours available to all registered students to work on class projects outside of class time as needed, as well as to pick up any pieces that still need to be fired following the end of class. A finalized schedule will be provided in initial communications prior to the start of class, though please be aware that there will be fewer daytime hours during the week due to youth summer camps in June and July.
