The Art of Coiling with Janet Keefe – $160 June 2 from 10am – 4pm

Slow, calming and absorbing: coiling offers freedom to create any size and any form of vessel and beyond. Its past use has ranged from beautiful simple, primitive food containers to highly decorated, sophisticated sculptural forms.
Coiling requires little space, little equipment, little expense and offers a great deal of potential for individuality.

The vessels Janet Keefe makes are soothingly smooth, organic and undulating. She has developed her own individual style of coiling and surface treatment that
she will share with you in this one day class.
This hands-on class is aimed for those with some prior experience working with clay. All materials will be provided and your work will be bisque fired at LOAM.
