Roadrunner Ceramics presents Intro to Clay
Date: January 20 - April 6
Learn the basics of ceramics this winter in a fun 12 week class for beginning students. Adult students will learn in a supportive small class setting with instruction from our teaching artist, Scott Beatty. Use the potter’s wheel to create beautiful, useful art and learn to decorate, glaze and fire your work. You’ll create one or more finished, glazed pieces.
Scott Beatty has been creating pottery seriously for five years. A veteran of the army, he served as a Spanish translator. He is a graduate of the University of Texas with degrees in economics, history, and applied mathematics, and worked as a high school math teacher and chess coach for 15 years. He has worked as a studio tech at Alamo City Pottery Workshop, and works in wheel thrown porcelain, reduction firing, and celadon glazes.
All materials and tools will be available for purchase on your first day of class. Firing service is included. We’re excited to offer this challenging and enriching class experience.
