Join instructor Kirsten Heteji for this six-week ceramics course.  In this hybrid class we will combine intermediate throwing techniques and handbuilding techniques in a variety of projects. We will be using the wheel as a tool to make basic shapes to then alter, building sculptural forms and vessels. Highlights on the wheel will be learning how to make bottle necks and enclosed forms to make jars and vases. We will build big by handbuilding slump molds and coil forms, and create sculptures from our practice throwing pieces. Must have taken one class with throwing instruction at MCAC.

Enrollment in this class provides access to MCAC's kilns and our full range of ceramic glazes. Enrolled students may also work on their own during open studio hours, at no additional charge. 

Class size is limited to nine to allow for individual instruction time. Early registration is encouraged; seats typically sell out in advance. Experienced potters are welcome to join this class to experiment and learn new techniques. Student work is fired on-site by our ceramics studio assistant, allowing everyone to take home finished pieces.
