What are the 5 tools:
-Wire tool (for cutting off the amount of clay you want) -Fettling Knife (for cutting clay/ not sharp like kitchen knife) -Needle tool (for poking a hole/ drawing)
-Rubber rib (for smoothing things out)
-Scoring tool (for putting two pieces together)
(those who do not have tools can use household items: dinner knife, paperclip, old credit card)

Extra things: colored underglazes if you want color on your work (sold online at Clay Planet, at Blick, etc.) + poster board or paper to make templates, stencils or draw ideas...

About Clay: Clay fires to 3 temperatures- low fire, mid-range & high fire. We only do low fire. We have always used low fire white clay in class. Clay Planet recommends Bravo Buff because it is very easy to build things with. It is slightly tan or pink when fired and can also be fired in any kiln (including a high temperature gas kiln). There are other clays to choose from as well. They like San Jose white if you want a low fire white colored clay. (If you have one class left or can only buy one class and cannot purchase anything, we can leave clay for you to pick up.)

Cost: $195 for four classes $55 for one class
$40 if you have access to a kiln (or if you live in another city we will try to research where you can fire)

Cancellation Policy: 24-hour notice or loss of class

Changes because of Zoom: You will now be able to take the class with one other person! ... OR you can make another 3-hour (not including detail work) project in your spare time

How will I get my work fired: Finished pieces will need to be delivered in a box to Elizabeth Orleans Studio in Venice, CA. They will be dropped off curb side or buzzed in to leave work in hallway. All work will be fired in kiln, glazed with clear glaze, fired a second time and packed in box to be picked up.
