Printing on Clay

Instructor: Anna Freeman
An introduction to print techniques on clay, including stencils, screen-printing and
more! We’ll be using underglazes on leatherhard clay, with demonstrations and
time to practice applying the techniques. The focus of the workshop is on learning techniques and processes rather than making a finished product. Optional, students may bring a leatherhard test tile or form to practice techniques.

Ceramics I: Introduction for Beginners

Instructor: Lois Sharpe 
This class is an introduction to the creative medium of clay and is designed for true beginners with no or very little ceramics experience. The first part of the class will be dedicated to learning the characteristics and possibilities of clay through hand building techniques that can be used to create functional ware or sculptural forms. As students’ progress they can make a decision about exploring the potter’s wheel or continuing on with hand building skills to find their own personal form of creative expression. Decorating, glazing and various firing options will be covered. Students are required to purchase a basic ceramics tool kit (available at Michael’s or Jerry’s Artarama).  All clay must be purchased through MOCA.
