Service Description

In this 6 week class, students will learn slab, coil and pinch construction methods and combine them to make functional and decorative pottery! We will make a cylindrical coil vase, a box shaped planater, a coil bowl and a tile wall hanging. We will glaze our pieces during classes 3 and 6. All glazes and firings are included in the class fee. Clay is included in the class fee to allow students to choose white or brown clay for the different projects. Students are encouraged to wear comfy old clothes and bring a bib apron to cover their clothes. This class is for beginner and experienced hand builders and meets Monday evenings, 6-8:30 pm. Due to the small class size, no refunds will be available one week prior to the first class or once the class has started. Instructor: Gin Scott Gin is the owner of Create Pottery Studio and loves teaching kids' classes! She and her husband Rhyne live in Statesville and after raising their 3 children, Ben, Abby and Luke and a rewarding career of over 30 years as a Speech-Language Pathologist she opened the studio in 2019. Gin wanted to share her joy for clay with others and to build a community of makers. She took her first pottery class many years ago at Mitchell Community College and Bruce Jordan was her instructor! Gin considers herself a hand builder, using slab construction to make most of her pieces and tiles. She has taught Kids' Studio, "Taste of Clay" and Beginning Hand Building classes and several clay workshops for kids and adults. Gin is very grateful to be able to share her favorite way of making art with others!!
