Starting with inspiration from the Newark Museum’s ceramic collections, participants will create functional and decorative objects using throwing methods to stretch and bend clay as it spins on a potter’s wheel.
The course will cover the basics of working with clay and allow participants to trim, embellish, and glaze their works.
Registration includes instruction, use of studio equipment and tools, and twenty-five-pounds of clay along with glaze and kiln firings. Additional clay, (glaze and kiln firings included) is available to purchase for $2 per pound.
Courses will run as scheduled only if minimum enrollment is met. If not, all registered participants will be notified within one week of first class and registration fees will be refunded.
The Newark Museum’s 2019 Arts Workshops and teaching artist programs are generously supported in part by The Estate of Phyllis and Sanford Bolton.
