Title: Ceramics: “Fall Pumpkin”
Description: Come create a one-of-a-kind decorative work of art. Through guided instruction, you will create a ceramic pumpkin using a variety of hand-building techniques. Students will lean to construct ceramic forms using pinch method and many other foundational pottery techniques along the way. During class, you will choose a glaze that the instructor will apply after firing is complete. The finished pumpkins will be ready for pick-up within two weeks of the class date.
