Welcome to Muddy Moose Pottery! I'm so excited to bring you this super fun pumpkin pinch pot clay class. We will start out by reading a pumpkin themed book and then we will then dive right into our clay hand-building class to make a fun clay pumpkin complete with a stem and curly vines! We will discuss clay terminology and apply that knowledge to building our pumpkins. Some of the clay techniques we will be using are pinch pot techniques, coils, slip and score methods and more!

In this class, you will need to have the following supplies, these supplies can be found at stores such as Walmart, Target and craft stores or they can be ordered online from a retailer such as Amazon: * 1 lb. Air dry clay, I like the Crayola brand (2.5 lb. bucket is about $5) Amazon link: https://amzn.to/3fxCS7g **Please note, the techniques taught in this class are those used for real, kiln-fired clay. Air dry clay is the only non-fired clay that mirrors the same properties as real clay. It is kindly asked that students do not use sculpey, model magic, or play-doh as the techniques taught will not work with these alternatives. * Table cloth or something to protect your space * Apron or old shirt for student to protect clothing (optional) * Small sponge * Small cup or bowl of water * Fork or toothpick * Paintbrush Optional: * We will be reading "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything" by Linda Williams. If you would like to purchase the book to follow along it can be found at Target, major book retailers, or using this link: https://amzn.to/2QTg9Ip * We will not be painting these pumpkins during a live class, but if your learner would like to do so once the pumpkin is dry, acrylic paints work best. I like the brands Apple Barrel and Folk Art, but any acrylic or tempura paint will be perfect! The colors I use in my tips and tricks video are orange, brown, white, green and yellow. * Mod Podge sealer. Most acrylic paints will have a semi-gloss finish, so this isn't necessary unless you want your piece to have a high gloss finish. ($7 for a 16 oz. bottle)
45 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
