About the Event
Ages: 8 & up!
All skill levels are welcome! Join instructor Amanda Flack at 4P Studios Pottery Studio to create new memories and a keepsake in clay you will surely cherish for years to come!
This class is perfect for beginner or intermediate clay students looking to learn tips and tricks for successful hand building in clay. Those with more advanced skills will have this session tailored to their experience level. Students will create their own unique hand built item during this session. The instructor will fire and glaze the piece based on the student's choice from in studio glazes! Should the student wish to schedule a separate time with the instructor to learn to use underglazes for their creation, 4P Studios is able to accomodate this for an additional $40 fee. Requests for scheduling this additional session and learning to utitlize underglazes will be coordinated directly with your instructor.
Students are asked to wear closed toe shoes, clothes they don't mind getting dirty, and to bring a clean towel with them to class (in most cases, the clay will wash out of clothing and towels).
Please keep in mind that pottery is a process. The time you will spend in class is for learning beginner/intermediate skills and for making your beautiful creations. The pieces you will create during this session will need to be bisque fired once your class is completed and they are fully dry (in the greenware state). This will take roughly 1-2 weeks.
At the end of your session, your instructor will have you select your glaze choices from a selection of studio glazes. Your bisqued works will then be glaze fired, which will take another 1-2 weeks for completed pieces to be ready for pick up in their finished state. The anticipated time from the end of your class for the studio to contact you to pick up your completed projects is about 4-6 weeks. Your patience is appreciated.
In most cases all works created will be food safe, your instructor will confirm this when the works are picked up.
For the sake of longevity - we strongly recommend you handwash your items.
We do not recommend using your pieces in the microwave.
The time you will spend during the workshop session is for creating your beautiful masterpieces. Your instructor will fire and glaze your pieces in the studio glaze options at no additional charge. However, if you wish to learn how to apply and use underglazes for different effects, this is a separate session and additional fee. If you wish to add this extra service, this will be discussed and scheduled with your instructor the night of your event.
