This is an 8 week class 

If you’ve ever looked at sculpture and thought, “Ooh, I like it, but it looks so hard,” this is the course to dissuade you of that notion.  Take a hands-on tour of the world of sculpting with instructor, Neil Grant.  

Slab rollers are easy and fun to use.  They produce large slabs of uniform clay quickly and this opens up to artist the ability to make a variety of beautiful pieces such as bags, clothing, faces and even figures in a manner that can’t be achieved simply by hand or with a potter’s wheel.  Neil will demonstrate the underlying principles of making slab based pieces and students will then be able to either participate in a guided step by step project or can set off on their own individual project with supervision.  This class is suitable for beginners and those who just want to get a little off the beaten track with their art projects.

Materials

Fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glaze and firing fee. A tool kit may be purchased for $14. Open studio time, which is scheduled several times throughout the week, is available at no extra charge.
