In this two-session class, students will go through the full creation process of making ceramic beads.  In the first session, you’ll will be introduced to the appropriate kinds of clay to use, various methods of forming your work, creating simple molds from ceramic and silicone, and the preparation of your work for the first firing. The second session will introduce you to the various glazes and stains to color your pieces with, how to prepare your work for the glaze firing, and how to load the beads into a ceramic kiln. Your pieces will be ready in about one week for pickup or mailing.

Please dress in casual clothes, bring your reading glasses if you need them, and a bag lunch.
