  • Please choose this option only if you have a current NHAC membership. Choosing this option without a current membership delays finalizing your registration. Thank you.
  • Please choose this option if you do not have a current NHAC membership. If you are registering a student (grades k thru 12), please consider the $20 yearly student membership-it's the same cost as the $20 non-member fee!

    As an adult signing up for more than one class, it will cost less to add a yearly membership instead of paying the non-member fee for each class!

Finishing your pottery piece can be a daunting decision. This 6 week class will cover the entire process from making the pottery pieces to finishing them with the many options available to the ceramic artist. We will cover adding textures to the clay surface, carving into the surface, sgraffito decoration, underglazes, underglaze transfer, wax resist and using the traditional glazes. Glazing applications will also be explored: dipping, painting, resist, pouring and overlapping!  Class fee includes clay, glaze, firing, and use of tools.
