Learn the basics of clay with Avé Rivera! Intro to Clay covers all of the hand building techniques; pinch, coil, and slab building. You will also learn fun ways to add surface design to your creations, whether it be through carving, stamping, or glazing. This tactile, meditative, stress relieving art medium is fun and inclusive. Intro to Clay will focus on four guided projects: a decorative wall tile, a coil built vase, slab built pottery, and a sculptural luminary. This class is perfect for anyone who is new to clay!
