In this class, you are encouraged to sign up with a friend, sibling, roommate, parent, or partner. Sure, Ceramic classes can be a great place to meet people or self-reflect with creativity… But this class is focused on making with a loved one and sharing in some laughs. Every week we will learn new skills in ceramics and make objects that reflect that skill. In this course, we will learn slab building, pinch pots, and wheel throwing. Once we have a better understanding of clay, each paring can work on a final project of their choosing. Matching mugs? Great! Friendship planters? Why not! Sculptures based on an inside joke? Absolutely! Come make some memories as well as ceramic goodies.
