Arts & Crafts, Classes & Worskhops, Private Events / Teambuilding adventure hosted by Julie
- Duration: 2 Hours total
- Language: Offered in English
Teaching is a passion of mine that I have welcomed into my studio working with children and adults in various classes. My Art Education degree allows me to create appropriate lessons that incorporate exploration and learning techniques. I teach hand building, private guided lessons, offer open studio, and lessons on the wheel. While creating myself and with students I love the process, the ball of clay that shows such expression when completed. Watching students find their way during class is a joy to experience, and I have witnessed the power of playing with clay. The way mood is affected by the process of creating with this malleable material. After working with clay, I feel a sense of calm and wanting more time to explore. Feelings can be shown in three dimensions with farther exploration into surfaces and colors. The possibilities are endless, and I am grateful to be able to share an experience.
Spend up to 2 hours in the studio working with your hands and expressing yourself with clay using handbuilding techniques.
There will be a demonstration to get you started on the current project. Then you will have the remaining time to work on your own piece with individual guidance if needed.
The wet clay work will be completed during the first week, and the following week you will be able to return to glaze your piece.
Some of the functional pieces you will work towards are vases, teacups, and coil bowls just to name a few. All glazes that will be used are non-toxic and food safe.
This experience is for two consecutive Fridays, with up to 2 hours available to work in the studio each Friday. Please check your calendar and make sure you are free for both Fridays!
