Session I Geology of Clay shows why clay acts the way it does, exploring minerals and muds.
Clay Science at the Museum combines the science of clay (its role in soil and geology) with artistic exploration and making art. We will search for clay in different soils, process clay dug from nearby strata, search for connections with clay minerals in the Museum exhibits, and create with clay form and color. Glazing, firing, and all materials included. $10 suggested supply fee on donation basis, payable to Instructor.
NOTE: All work not picked up a week after the last class will be donated to charity. Parts of the class will be held outdoors as weather permits.
