Build a House
with Megan Irving

Wednesdays   |   10am - 1pm  |   September 15- November 3
8 Weeks  |  Instructor: Megan Irving

In this playful and independent class, we will learn about building with slabs—making and attaching rectangular pieces together to build structures. The ceramic house you build can be for any purpose you choose. It could be a candle holder/lantern, art object, or built to aid in the housing crisis faced by toads, fairies, or a favorite miniature toy —it’s up to you! During the first half of the course, we will focus on select hand-building skills, design, and assembly of your houses. We will discuss each project as a group so we can learn from each other, to this end, drawing your ideas before you build is encouraged but not required. During the second half of the class, some students may wish to work on display options, preparing their work for a gallery or home setting while others will want to work on detailed decoration in relief, 3D, or surface work. Depending on your design there may be time to make more than one project. Instruction during the last four weeks will be based on the individual needs of the students enrolled leaving lots of time for working independently and learning from each other. If you are also enrolled in Open Studio you will have more time to work and make slabs ahead of class so they can dry before you build. *8-Person Capacity
