Tools include tin snips, hacksaws, files, drills, rivets, screws, epoxy glues and low temp soldering.

Clay Sculpture
This class will focus on form and volume. Students will start with water clay, seeing and sculpting forms ranging from geometric to organic. The use of form will extend into the study of the figure and gesture; there will be opportunities to work with a live model. Participants will also learn how different clays can give different control in sculpting and which are best suited to specific projects. A firing fee will apply.
