June 27 – August 29

This is a nine week class.  (No class July 4th)

You have got your centering down; you know how to use the slab roller. What is next? We will explore various surface treatments for decorating your pieces. Sgrafitto (carving), mishima (slip inlay), water etching, sprigging and stamping are all options that will be introduced to help you take your pots to the next level.  Students should bring a sketchbook to class and expect to do a little homework in this class.  A syllabus will be provided at the first class.  This class is NOT for beginners.






Refunds will not be given within one week of the start of a class. Classes are not pro-rated, and there are no makeups for missed classes. A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.
The Art Center reserves the right to cancel any class or workshop due to insufficient enrollment, in which case tuition will be fully refunded.
If Falmouth Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions, we will be closed and the missed classes will be rescheduled.


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.
