Garden Totem Classes
Create something unique, personal & spectacular for your garden.

Learn sculpture skills, build confidence and Practice creativity with a small supportive group in my studio. NO Tools necessary for beginners.

In this class you'll design, build & personalize a garden totem.  You will learn hand building skills that will prepare you for other clay projects. We'll work in stoneware, sculpting parts that will stack like beads to form a vertical sculpture. You'll work toward your own style and learn the important issues that allow the totem to stay out year round.  We'll fire in a reduction firing to about 2350 degrees, cone 10, in clay speak. This class has been very popular with Previous participants.  Some decide to go again! So I've added a class just for them.

Maximum 7 students per class, in my studio.  (Minimum of 6 for class to go).

Class Includes: 35 lbs Stoneware Clay, Glazes & Firing in a high fire gas kiln to Cone 10, (2350 degrees),  and the structure for your totem cut to length ready for installation

$270 Class +$30 clay/glazes/firings fee  +$20 for the totem base & rod cut to length for your creation. 

Total $320 for classes & your fired totem ready to install

Classes must have 6 participants for a class to go forward.  No more than 7 in a class.

No refunds will be given for missed class sessions. I'll try to accommodate getting the totem finished through following classes should one become ill during a session.

I cannot refund for changed schedules within 10 days of start date of the class, as Spaces are tricky to fill at the last moment. Every effort will be made to fill a class however.

Thank you!
