Hey Kim! I'm happy to go over teapots during a typical class, but it would be a very abbreviated version of what we go over during this long form class. The 4 week long class will be going into much more detail than we can usually fit into a standard 2 hour class. If you only are going to miss the one class, still sign up! I think you'll get a lot from the other three classes in this series.
Shoot, I'm not available on 5/21, and I'm not sure about 5/7 either. Would you be able to teach these tea pot skills to me on the one-off lesson days???!? (You shall not escape repeating yourself!!) 😉 -- Kim Blount
This class will meet Tuesday night at 7:00 for four weeks, meeting every other week. We will have the opportunity to make large and complex forms that take time. Learn how to achieve a smooth shape and use colored and textured clay to complete your project. We will use slip and underglaze to decorate our piece. This class is open to anyone at any clay experience level, but is not a "drop-in" class. There is a lot to cover and I will not be able to catch you up during the next class.
