We are so excited to have Allison teaching two classes at #theclaycoop this fall! Making Pots for the Wood Kiln
Friday (9/20-11/8) 4:00-6:30 pm 
Instructor: Allison Severance
8 weeks - $360
In this class students will make pots that can be finished in a wood firing kiln. As soon as the clay hits the wheel, students will be encouraged to think about the touch of the flames or the accumulation of natural wood ash decorating their finished pots! Demonstrations will include making functional pots on the wheel destined for fire with an emphasis on consideration of forms and their eventual placement and stacking in the wood kiln chamber. Topics for discussions will include the wood firing process, glazes and slips appropriate for the wood kiln, loading and stacking techniques, wadding and its placement, stoking patterns, and more. Students will have the opportunity to fire their pots in local community wood-firing workshops, including Allison’s, and actively participate in the creative and magical experience of wood-firing. [The class does not include the fee for firing]

Beginner and Intermediate Wheel
Friday (9/20-11/8) 6:30-9:00 pm
Instructor: Allison Severance
8 weeks - $360
In this class students will learn the skills needed to create pots on the wheel. A strong emphasis will be placed on making pots that have a job in the kitchen and that are intended for daily use– pots for food preparation and serving. Considerations of form, function and surface will be discussed. Pots demonstrated will include mugs, teabowls, oval and square bakers, lidded jars, pitchers, bowls, and plates. Demonstrations will also include pulling and attaching handles, altering round forms, attaching knobs, and trimming.
