Registration required below

The DRBU Arts Initiative presents the Aesthetics of Pottery class. Learn all aspects of completing a clay project: wheeling and throwing techniques, trimming, slab-rolling, hand-building, decorating, and glazing. Create pieces, both sculptural and utilitarian, for the kitchen, table, and garden. As a maker, express aesthetics through individual details. Projects can range from bowls and cups to tiles, planters, or birdbaths. 

Bowl or cup—explore design and decoration. What will the bowl be used for? How does the design reflect that use? 

Tile—explore size and function. How will the tile be used? Is it for hanging on the wall or for use in the kitchen or bath on a multiple-tile project?

Planter or birdbath—explore structure and style. Will it be whimsical or oriented toward decorative qualities? How will it stand in the garden?
