       Did you miss the glaze workshop in August?  Join         Janet for a fun day learning some new techniques       and try some glazes we don't usually carry at Womanspace.  We will have AMACO Shino, Celadon, Satin Matte and Potters Choice glazes.   Learn some tips about proper application of glaze for each and layering one over the other. This is a great way to try a new line of glaze prior to purchasing. 

    Please bring with you, 5 bisque pieces made from 1 pound or under, cone 5/6 clay, trimmed with a 3/8" or more foot. Event will cover glaze use and 1 firing to be picked up at a later date. 

    Bring a sack lunch and stay for the Underglaze Craze at 1:00!

    This session is all about underglazes. It is not only for experienced potters who want to explore a different finishing technique, it is also a great transition for those who have not played with clay before. We will cover both painting on bisque and image transfer using molds. Experienced potters feel free to bring up to 2  bisque piece(2) with you out of 1 lb or under cone 5/6 clay. Those new to clay can chose a piece already made. Class includes glaze, clay and firings.

    For beginners, as well as those who may have a little experience. If you have been looking for a creative new activity to do with your teenager, son or daughter, wife or husband or a group of friends, you will love this beginning wheel thrown pottery class! It will offer ample opportunity to practice wedging, centering, and pulling up tea bowls, soup or cereal bowls, and lidded vessels (maybe some handles too!). Each student will have a wheel to work on. We will skip a week to get everything fired and then come back for some fun with glazes and surface decorations. Fee includes up to 25lbs of clay, glazes & firing.

    Facilitator: Stacey McDonald

    Starting from scratch, the beginner will learn the essentials on the wheel. We will begin by centering the clay on the wheel and making a bowl. Building on that success, we will progress to mugs and vases where we will have the opportunity to attach handles. Proficient students will have time to make a plate, and/or explore different ways to decorate and alter your thrown forms and express your unique style. The focus of this class is to take the student from where they are, with little or no experience, and foster the skills and confidence to incorporate wheel throwing pottery into their artistic expression.

    Facilitator: Jaymee Fedor

    One of the best ways to improve your art skills is to work from real life. Explore techniques on your own and under the guidance of the instructor using a live art model. Poses will vary from quick five-minute gestures to a final hour and a half pose.  All levels and media are welcome, so grab your paint, charcoal, pens, or clay and get ready to improve your proportions and work in one of the oldest fine art traditions! Womanspace has some paper and art materials available for use, but a pad of newsprint or large sketch pad is recommended for shorter poses.
