We're sorry, but this course is over. The last meeting was Monday, December 2, 2019.
Ceramics: Handbuilt Sculptural & Functional Forms
Instructor: Tracey Priska
In this class participants will experiment with and
explore handbuilding techniques such as pinching,
coiling, slab construction and subtractive methods
to create both sculptural and functional forms. Class
time will also include technical demonstrations, group
discussions and presentation of contemporary, ceramic
work. Students will be encouraged to work at their own
pace and skill level with guided instruction, to continue
developing their own personal expression.

Clay can be purchased during your original class time from your instructor. Each 25 lb. bag of Wheat Stone is $14 and each 25 lb. bag of Porcelain is $17. Clay will not be sold during independent or open studio times. Up to 3 bags per term can be purchased. (There will be no clay sold after the wetwork deadline in each semester.)
Open Studio Information
Beginning WEEK 2 of the term on Wednesdays and Saturdays, Open Studio is for all students registered for a semester class of 12 hours or more and provides extra time in the studio to work on class projects. Students using open studio time must follow the department policies and schedule set by the BBAC Studio Technician.
The BBAC ceramics studio is not to be used as a production studio at any time. If you use additional clay purchased outside of the BBAC for projects, there will be a limit on how much the BBAC can fire.
