University Connected Learning
New art forms can be expensive, and when you don't know if you like something or not, making the investment is a big risk. In this course, you'll learn how to set up a ceramics studio in the comfort of your own home without having to buy a single ceramics tool. We'll raid the kitchen, junk drawer, and bathroom to find tools that will get you started with this wonderful, tactile medium. The only thing you'll have to buy is some paperclay from Ceramics Supply USA, a local SLC ceramics supply store. We will start by making very simple sculptures, but ultimately you'll learn the basics of handbuilding ceramics: pinch, slab and coil construction. Finally, in lieu of glazing, we'll explore at-home solutions for bringing color to your fired or unfired creations.
