Welcome to our queer pottery class! My name is Christina and I'm going to be helping you all on your pottery journey to make weird and cool stuff!
Here is a loose breakdown of each week:
Week 1 to 2: Mugs, Trimming and Weird Handles
We will focus on learning to throw the perfect cylinder, trimming our pieces and a few ways to attach handles
Week 3: Smoke Show
This week I’ll do a pipe/ incense/ candle holder handbuilding demonstration
Similar techniques are used for making figurines and trinket dishes so those are also options!
Week 4: Slab and Coil Pot Vases
We will be using slab and/or coil pot techniques to make taller and weirder structures
Week 5: Miniature Night!!
Learning how to handbuild and throw tiny things!
Week 6: Lesbian Earrings and Pronoun Pins
Making earrings and pins with cookie cutters
We will also dry trim and clean up the pieces we’ve made throughout the course for its first firing!
Week 7 and 8: Glaze it Up!
The final two weeks we’ll glaze all the pieces we made
If you miss a week between weeks 1 and 5, you can make up your class any time before week 6. Make up classes are independent and can be booked anytime during regular operating hours. Please email or call the shop at 905 525 2225 if you can’t make a class!
