The aim of this course is to tune-in to a place inspiring to you, then reflect and express the qualities of that place via sculpted tiles - creating small murals and triptychs. Each session will begin with a demonstration, then hands-on work (with close instruction.) The class will explore techniques of tile creation: These include pattern design, forming and carving, surface decoration with engobes, oxides, and glaze.
Cone six clay and glazes will be used. The course takes place over five Saturdays, from 9:00 am to 12 noon. The small class format creates a space where both beginners and experienced individuals may enjoy sharing the power of clay and the magical Sense of Place.

Note: The course is one in a series of Three Thematic "5-Class" Sessions. If ongoing ceramics development is your goal, it's fine to enroll in more than one "5-class" Session.
