Just For Kids - Kids Handbuilding - Pinch Pot Monster Mouths


with Amanda Williams, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 9, 2020 at 3:30 pm, runs for 1 week

We know you miss pottery classes!  We miss you too.  We have a pretty neat solution to social distancing for pottery.  As you know, the studio is small and it would be virtually impossible to keep everyone at a safe distance.  So, what will be happening is that Amanda will be in the studio, teaching and creating the project described over Zoom.  Upon registration, students will stop in at the studio and pick up a clay kit for the class.  Gather these homemade "tools" for your live, online session with Amanda:  a butter knife, a rule or straight edge, a fork or comb, an old plastic credit card or gift card, a dish of water, newspaper, and a plastic bag to cover the finished piece while drying.  Optional tools: a sponge, a chopstick, a paint brush, and interesting objects with textures you can press into the clay to add visual elements.  Once the session is complete, and you're satisfied with your project, you'll bring it back to the studio, and we will get it in the next available kiln firing.  And we'll let you know when it's ready for pick up!

Let your imagination run wild with clay, and make a pinch pot trinket dish shaped like a creature!  It can be a frog, a cat, a dog, or any sort of monster mouth you choose!  Follow the instructor in real time, as she walks step-by-step through the process!  Includes $12 material fee for clay and firing fee.
