We are excited to introduce a new course fusing both nature and ceramics! Take a leisurely walk through nature to collect inspiration and talk about textures and images observed for the clay project. Students bring a sketchbook and writing utensil for the introspective stroll, to journal and sketch what they see, think, or imagine. We will take those ideas to the classroom and translate them into a clay project! The instructor will supply objects and materials found in nature, but feel free to bring your own treasures to press into clay! Finished projects can be functional or decorative and are microwave, dishwater, and food safe. Students pick glaze colors for their projects. The instructor will fire the projects and they will be ready for pick-up at the Arboretum two weeks after the class during office hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Bring a sketchbook, writing utensil, and feel free to bring nature treasures to use. No experience necessary.  Pre-register.

Time: 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Ages: 6 through adult (children ages 6 to 12 must be accompanied by an adult)

Cost: $40 per class (includes materials and firing)

Instructor: Emma Rimi
