CLAY – What’s it all about?   An Introduction to Ceramics


This 4-week introductory class will cover all the ways to play with clay and become comfortable working in the clay studio. We will explore everything from hand-building to wheel throwing a mug and everything in between.  Participants will learn about design, construction, slab building, coiling, wheel throwing, finishing, and glazing. Introduction to studio equipment and tools, along with a lot of fun, is included. 

 About Janice:
Avid outdoors person, Janice Gaines-Ehlen became passionate about clay in 2017 while still working as a fitness trainer and massage therapist.  After selling her business in 2021, she applied her life-long habits of focus, hard work and practice to clay. She now throws on the wheel, does hand-building of all types, and enjoys teaching and sharing the joy of ceramics with others.  Her first solo show in the Hoffman Gallery in July was a big hit.
