This 6-week course will run a within an 8-week flexible time frame of your choice from the time of your first class. Basically, you will pay for and attend 6 classes, but it is up to you what days to come within an eight-week period. We wanted to allow flexibility so adults can attend, but also be able to miss a class when needed.
This course is for students of all experience levels and will focus on understanding and applying the aesthetics, processes, form, and function of the ceramics art form. Students will learn many of the following skills, hand building (pinch & coil), wheelwork (centering, pulling, shaping, attachments, cylinder and bowl forms), glazing, and sculptural (additive, subtractive, positive, negative methods).
This course is for beginners and beyond.
All materials such as clay and glaze will be provided with the cost of the course.
Materials are included in the course fee.
You must register and pay to reserve a spot in the course.
Pottery & Ceramics for Adults Jan/ Feb/ March Sessions
All supplies will be provided including 25 pounds of clay, glazes and tools. If students want more than 25 pounds of clay or a specific type of glaze that isnt provided at STAC they may choose to purchase it for extra.
Pottery wheel access
16 students maximum for classes
at minimum, wheel access will be split during each class each student will have an hour of designated wheel access per session during the adult sessions.... while students are not accessing the wheel they may hand build, coil, pitching, glazing etc.
Payment is expected prior to registration to save a space in the course, unless you have made other arrangements with the owner. Payment plans can be set up if need be. Most people pay online, leave checks in studio mailbox or mail them to Shoe Town Art Center, 200 Merrimack Street, 2nd Floor, Haverhill, MA 01832
Since almost all of our classes run full, if you register for class that means someone else has been turned away to save your place in class. For this reason we cannot offer refunds if you decide to drop-out of the course anytime during the session. We will make every effort to accommodate you if you need to switch classes due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts or other such emergencies or events. It is our goal to make you happy and teach you the joy of art.
We don't prorate classes if you are going away on vacation or just going to miss a few, but we do have a very open make-up policy for our non-flex courses as long as we get a 24 hour notice. Please, feel free to make-up any class you might miss by attending another class being offered during the same session. We want you to work, have fun, and get the most out of your time at Shoe Town Art Center
