Pottery, Weaving Classes Scheduled
The Reynolds Homestead Creative Arts Center (334 Patrick Avenue, Stuart) will host pottery and weaving classes in the new year.
Pottery I: Pinch Building
A pinch pot is a simple form of hand-made pottery produced from ancient times to the present. The pinching method is used to create pottery that can be ornamental or functional, and has been widely employed across cultures and times.
Students will create functional and decorative ceramic pieces, including bowls, vases and “piggy” banks, while learning to develop a feel for clay and its properties.
The course instructor is Jessica Shelor. There are 8 sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning February 18 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The cost is $85.00 per person, and that includes 25 pounds of clay per student.
