These free, monthly get-togethers are a way for the local clay community to come together to support, encourage and grow in their exploration of all things clay. We will talk about what excites and draws us in about working with clay and our setbacks. We’ll discuss different clays and their properties, glaze, firing, the chemistry involved with glaze and firing, decoration, complex forms, additions to pieces and carving. We’ll share successful pieces and disasters, interesting discoveries, and other tidbits of know-how. Anyone who works with clay as a beginner or at an advanced level and people who have an interest in ceramics are invited to join the discussion. This is an invitation to build an open-minded place for clay enthusiasts to meet and have conversations on Clay Matters. Please note: This class is discussion-based and does not include making or glazing any new wares.
