July 4 - July 5


A SPECIAL PLACE: Handbuilding Houses

Weekend Two (2-day): July 4-5, 2020. Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.

A SPECIAL PLACE: Handbuilding Houses

This workshop will focus on explorations of special places, using the house as a starting point. Students will watch Susan create one of her unique houses and then make their own house or structure. They will also apply low fire glaze and underglaze to the greenware to prepare for sawdust firing or another firing method of their choice. The primitive fire options for these pieces will be discussed so that students can experiment at home. Enjoy Susan’s fun relaxed teaching style as she encourages all to share ideas and techniques.

PLEASE NOTE: Work made in this class will not be fired at MISSA, but Susan will discuss firing options for students after they return home.
