Join Zoey to explore the basics of Slab Building and Construction on 07/18 & 08/01: For our first session, all participants will be able to create a Birdhouse. This project will be made using rolled out slabs of various dimensions. Templates will be provided to depict how many slabs will be needed and their dimensions. This house will have an area on the front for a small stick-perch and an opening big enough for your birdy. In this session we will discuss and explore the act of rolling out slabs, slab forms, mending by scoring, decorating methods, and tips to achieve a strong structure.
Two weeks later, the class will meet again once the projects are bisque-fired to apply glazes. Once glazed the Birdhouses will await glaze-fire and the perch and hanger will be attached for the participant to pick up!
Use this fun summer project as a chance to relax and try something new. The Birdhouse will be suitable for the outdoors.
Pre-Registration is required.
