• All Levels
  • Youth

Students will learn slab building, coil building and working with push and slump moulds and supports to create abstract sculpture, pots etc. We will look at how to attach parts, how to make hollow forms, and how to plan ahead when building pieces with multiple parts. We will also explore surface texture using interesting found objects. Conceptual content: We will discuss sculptural terms like abstract vs figurative, 3 dimensional vs 2 dimensional work, form, shape, volume, balance, symmetry and asymmetry, geometric and organic, etc.

What you will learn

  • Slab building
  • Coil building
  • Working with push and slump moulds
  • Using supports to create abstract sculpture, pots etc.
  • How to attach parts
  • How to make hollow forms
  • Surface texture
  • Basic glazing
  • Conceptual content:
  • Sculptural terms like abstract vs figurative, 3 dimensional vs 2 dimensional work, form, shape, volume, balance, symmetry and asymmetry, geometric and organic, etc.
  • Sculptural work vs. functional ceramics
  • Because clay takes time to dry before it can be fired, only a few pieces will be finished by the end of the course. Students can return on a later, prescheduled date to glaze their larger projects.

Materials to Bring

Suggested materials:

  • Apron
