Students will create and decorate hand-built ceramic wind chimes focusing on textures found in nature. Dependent on weather, at the start of each class participants take a leisurely walk through nature to collect inspiration and talk about textures and images observed for the clay project. No experience required. We will learn slab and coil techniques as well as various decorating techniques including carving and etching. Participants will learn the properties of clay and focus on making different impressions and patterns in their pieces. Each participant will design and personalize a wind chime for their very own. We will be using slab technique and create multiple pieces during the class that will later be assembled together to create a functional mobile/wind chime. When complete, each piece will be approximately 12”-14” long. Pre-registration required.
