Open Clay Day takes place each month. Each monthly session includes two afternoons - one for forming the clay and the second day for glazing the fired pieces you made. Pieces will be fired in our kiln twice.
Make whatever you'd like! Everything you need to make basic hand-built pieces is included, from start to finish. You will have access to basic clay tools, textures/stamps, drying shelves, underglazes, glazes, brushes and two kiln firings. (Some of our tools are reserved for specialty classes and will not be available here).
The fee for a session is $45 + clay. Pay for the session on this page.
Clay needs to be purchased separately in class. Bring a $10 check or cash for 8lb of clay. You can purchase more clay at any time. Choose from lowfire clay in white or terracotta. (If you have left over clay after a session, it will be saved for you to use at another session).
No instruction takes place at Open Clay Days. This is for those with basic experience in handbuilding. Most importantly, you need to have experience attaching two pieces of clay together so that they stay attached during the brutal drying and firing stages. You should also have some experience making pinch, coil and slab pots.
We don't have a wheel at Casita Workshop.
