This course is theory and demonstration centered. It is NOT focussed on making work – you will need pieces in various stages of dryness. You will receive an email with what you need prior to each week. This course does NOT include clay, or other materials, but does include firing. We can sell small quantities of most materials such as clay, engobes, underglazes, tools, and firing, some washi, some decals, a few special glazes, etc., however, you will need to purchase lustres and metallics and anything you choose to expand your palette from Picasso’s. the course includes bisque and glaze firing and a single lustre firing will be done for everyone’s work at the end of the course. The course will be recorded and available online.

During COVID restrictions we have a class size of 6 people with plenty of space in the studio to practice social distancing. Please bring your own hand towel.
