Pottery Classes at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts!

Pottery Classes at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts!

Join Jim Horsford for an instructional six-week pottery class starting Wednesday, July 1st! Learn the ins and outs of pottery and go home with some great pieces of art work! Class dates are:

July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and August 5

Many times to chose from:

Here is an outline of the classes:

1. First class:
Students wedge two pieces of clay and step by step we throw two small pots: a mug and a bowl.

2. Second class:
We continue throwing and make three more pots.

3. Third class:
Now that we have five pots that have been kept moist in plastic and we trim the bottoms of this work.

4. Fourth Week:
Its back to throwing, and we make three larger pots.

5. Week five:
Work from week four is trimmed, handles are made for mugs and pitchers, clay can be added to the exterior of work or textures can be carved into the surface of work.

6. Week six:
Each student will have six to eight pots that they will glaze.
About a week after glazing, students from all classes will return for a pick-up celebration.
