Get your hands dirty! Learn the basics of hand building while you make multiple decorative ornaments for your gardens, paths, patio, and exterior walls. We will make hanging tree ornaments, garden stones, wall plaques, hide-a-key rocks and even some small dipping and sipping vessels. Our pieces will be decorated with vibrant underglazes and finished with a clear glossy glaze to add sparkle and protection from weather for years to come. Each class will begin with a demo followed by time for students to make pieces of their own. Nancy will give plenty of individual instruction, offering ideas while helping to resolve problems. Your pieces will add splashes of color outside your windows all year long, even in the middle of winter! This class is suitable for beginner to experienced, anyone who wants to enjoy working with their hands in clay to create shapes decorated by fantastical designs with dynamic colors. A good way to re-enter the world after a year of isolation. The class consists of three sessions making objects with wet clay, followed by 10 days off while our clay pieces dry and get bisque fired in a kiln. We will then spend another two sessions applying underglazes and the final coat of clear sealing glaze. All our work will then be fired again, and available for pick up at the Art League after July 31.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
