An adult and child hand-building-with-clay class is scheduled from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, Dec. 13, at The Phipps Center for the Arts.
The class is geared to adults and children ages 4 ½ years and older to be creative together while making holiday gifts for teachers, friends and loved ones. Participants will learn basic hand-building clay techniques such as pinching, coiling and slab-building.
Using white clay and colorful under glazes, participants will create snowman figures, candleholders, candy dishes and other gifts. The instructor will apply a clear glaze and fire the work, which will be ready to pick up Friday, Dec. 19.
Instructor Betsy Smith received a BFA in ceramics from UW-River Falls and is an instructor for kids’ clay camps at Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis.
The class fee is $37 per adult and child pair, $14 for each additional child. If each participant makes only two items, then each gift costs less than $10.
