Hand Building POTTERY*

Terry Dunnigan has studied science in university and ceramic technology at college and has been working with clay since she was a teenager. She states, "Research and design using many different clays available and the whole middle section of the periodic table is where my passion lies. The endless possible combinations and results of metals combining with the alkali and the firing process is what makes clay unique as an art form." Join this class and learn the skills and techniques involved for creating pottery and ceramics. From the lowly mug to a sculptured masterpiece and everything in between, that is it! Anyone can play with clay! These classes are open to those who have attended in the past and to new participants.
