In this two hour lesson we will go over basics on working with clay. Depending on your needs, we can structure the lesson to address the technique or the tools you need to use in order to bring your ideas to life. You will also be acquainted with the studio rules. If you want Phi to finish and fire a piece for you it will be $20 and fired first come first serve.
Lessons are scheduled directly with Phi after purchase. Thank you.
What is provided at the studio? What do students need to bring?
We will provide you with the tools you need to create your pottery work. Please bring your ideas, projects, and dreams to the studio! Phi would love to help you learn the skills to bring your projects to life.
What style of firing is available?
For class, we will mostly be firing in electric oxidation unless otherwise noted. We are working on an expiremental gas fired soda kiln, and we also will be doing monthly raku firings, starting mid-February 2020.
What clays will we be using?
We stock Bennett, a cone 6 stoneware from the Tacoma Clay Art Center. It is an off-white clay that Phi uses for their regular ware.
Cancellations, missed classes, open studio time?
There will be no unscheduled studio time available for students. Cancellations made ten days before class starts will be refunded. We suggest that you attend all class dates to get the most out of the course, but we understand if you need to miss a day. Phi will be happy to schedule one makeup session per class, usually around week 6 when we are finishing up wet work for the series.
