Saturday & Sunday, November 11 & 12

Ages 18+

Inspired by Ruth Rippon’s larger-than-life sculptures of the little old ladies she dubbed “lolllies”, this class will offer students an understanding of the different stages of clay and how to halt the drying process so that works can be sculpted over a period of time. Participantswill learn basichand-building techniques (slab, coil, pinch) to create a table-size sculpture. Students are invited to take their sculptures to Alpha Fired Ceramic for firing, the final stage of the ceramic process. Educators receive free instruction materials.

$135 members • $145 nonmembers (price does not include firing)
