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: up to 30lbs Stoneware Clay, Bisque Fire, Glazes & Firing in a high fire gas kiln to Cone 10, (2350 degrees),  and the structure for your totem ready for installation

$370 Class for 20 hours of making and glazing time in studio  + 2 hours to stack the finished work

+$30 clay/glaze and firings fee

+$20 for the totem base & rod cut to length for your creation. 

Total $420 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.  A full refund if class doesn't fill.

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 within 20 days of start date of the class if you cancel, Spaces can be tricky to fill at the last moment.

Every effort will be made to fill a class however from a waiting list.  A $25 Registration fee will be Held from refund if changes are made.
