Hand-building with Stoneware

​In this class we will create mostly functional pottery, things like mugs, plates and vases, which will be made from stoneware clay.

All experience levels welcome. 

 The caregiver must pick up a package containing stoneware clay, cutting wire, rolling pin, sharpened chop stick and newspaper. 
Zoom invites will be sent the Tuesday before class.
Along with the above materials, students should also bring the following to class each day: 
1/ mug of water for slip making (a glue to stick the clay together)
2/ a dull knife (ie flatware knife) for cutting the clay
3/ a fork or toothbrush for scratching the clay (you can also use the chop stick for this)
4/ textures you can find either outside or around the house. For example, leaves, twigs, small stones, flowers, old earrings, shoes (bottoms usually have texture), fabrics/lace etc.
5/ scissor 
6/ straight edge/ruler

When classes are over the caregiver must drop off all tools and the children’s pottery for firing.
