1. Ceramics: Handmade Serving Dish for the Holidays
Teacher: Barb Crosbie
In this two part series you will create a handmade serving dish with a winter or holiday theme. This could be a salad bowl, a serving tray or appetizer plate. You will learn the basics of slab construction in clay, and how to seam and attach clay pieces to create relief in your piece. In the first week you will build your piece, and in the second session you will glaze. All work will be available for pick up at the art center before thanksgiving. All pieces will be competed in stoneware clay and non-toxic glazes; these pieces will be dishwasher, oven and food safe.
Open to ages 14 and up.

Barb’s experience with clay started in a classroom setting, however, through time is has become largely self-directed. Barb studied at the Dundas Valley School of Art in Canada. She has sold pieces in Utah at numerous shows, across the country through her online store (www.etsy.com/shop/earthinart), at nature centers and small shops. In addition to teaching at the Schweinfurth, Barb teaches classes out of her home studio to children and adults, with instruction encompassing both hand building and throwing on the wheel.
