This hand-building and sculpture class is ideal for teens looking for a tranquil, creative space to learn fundamental techniques to make and decorate clay surfaces, with a focus on surface decoration.

New students will learn basic hand-building techniques like coiling, pinch pots, and slab work building up to more complex sculptural techniques as their skills and abilities develop.

Experienced students will continue to develop and refine their skills with assisted instructions that Tanya uses in her own ceramic art practice.

All students will focus on designing their own major work receiving assistance from Tanya with instructions on construction and refining surfaces as well as creating and experimenting with smaller projects and developing further skills in surface treatments that can be effectively applied to future projects.

Students will be encouraged to find inspiration from supplied images and samples while translating those into their own unique designs and style, to express themselves while finding their own artistic voice.
