No glazing in this class. It is about practice and learning to sculpt a face and head, not necessarily finishing it in this class. If you finish it and want it bisque fired, I’m happy to do that when it’s dry.

How to reserve a spot in my classes:

Email me with the class you wish. I will reply in the order received to let you know if there’s a spot. If there is still room in the class, you will mail a check for the full amount to me, Willi Eggerman, at 1815 Orchard Ave. Boulder CO 80304. Please send it along with with your full name, address, phone number, & the class session you are wanting in. I will hold spots for the email w/checks I receive promptly and add people to a wait list. I will deposit the checks on January 2. (This is to have my teaching income in the proper year).

A class will not go forward without 6 students and my studio can’t accommodate more than 7. If I receive enough students to warrant more classes, it’s possible I can add more classes to the schedule in April. Thanks for taking a look at the classes I’m offering. I hope one works for your enjoyment and growth in working with clay.
