About this Event
To introduce students to Ceramics at Dallas Makerspace. This class will cover the fundamentals of ceramics, followed by a complete walkthrough of the Ceramics space, and a brief demonstration of our cleaning procedures. The following topics will be discussed: clay and clay bodies, cones and firings, the production process and our shelving system, glazes, tools and equipment, and proper clean up. Students will gain an understanding of the ceramics process at Dallas Makerspace to be cleared to use the Ceramics space and the pottery wheels.
Special Considerations and Warnings
While many of us would teach for free, honorarium is a benefit to our members and allows us to receive compensation for the time that we take to share our knowledge with others. In order to get honorarium, there must be a minimum of 3 students that attend the class. The current system has a glitch which makes a student cancellation very difficult. If you cancel, it will not open up the space so another can take it. Our classes fill up very quickly and our department is very active. Please consider your schedule and availability ahead time. If there aren’t enough students to take the class, please note that the class might be cancelled.
By signing up for this class, you are consenting that if you should feel ill and/or have a fever prior to the class, you will stay home and not attend this class. Should you attend this class and test positive for covid recently afterward, you will notify DMS/the instructor so that they can notify their classmates that they were potentially exposed to COVID.
By signing up for this class, you are consenting to photography and videography. Photography and videography obtained during the class may be used for DMS Ceramics promotional purposes via social media.
NO ‘1’ SIZE FITS ALL
We highly recommend that you take multiple classes from multiple teachers. There are many ways to get an amazing end result and each teacher has their own unique way of creating and throwing with clay.
Everyone moves through classes at their own pace. When registering for classes back to back, either in the same department or in other departments, please give yourself plenty of time between classes as you may need more time than scheduled to complete a class.
