This class will be taught by High School Ceramics teacher Taylor Byrne. Taylor received her BFA in Photography and Sculpture from the University of Connecticut, and her MAT in Art Education from Tufts University.
Taylor is a potter making plates, bowls, mugs, etc. out of her studio space at The Clay School, a working pottery collaborative in Lynn, MA. She can't wait to share her love of all things clay with more of the Swampscott Community!
This 7 week class will introduce you to clay techniques in hand building and throwing on the pottery wheel. The class is great for all skill levels. We will create usable pottery of all kinds: plates, bowls, mugs, etc. Various surface decoration techniques using under glaze will be introduced. At the end of the 7 weeks you will leave with functional ceramic pieces that are glazed and ready to be used in your home!
The first 4 pieces are included with the cost of the class. additional clay can be purchased. This class is open to adults & high school students.
