News Release: Massillon Museum Offers Spring Ceramics Classes for Adults
Registration is now open for the Massillon Museum’s spring ceramics classes.
Artist Brittany Steigert will lead the Pottery Wheel class that starts on Tuesday, April 3. The four-week class will meet from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. each Tuesday through April 24. The class is limited to four students of any skill level, who will each make wheel projects from start to finish. Steigert will teach how to “throw pots” on the wheel as well as the firing and glazing processes. The small class size will allow one-on-one instruction and a pottery wheel for the use of each student. Tuition—$80 for non-members or $70 for Museum members—includes materials and access to all tools necessary to complete class projects. The class is open to anyone sixteen or older and to children twelve and older who are accompanied by an adult who is also taking the class.
The April session of Open Studio Ceramics for adults will begin on Wednesday, April 4. Previous Massillon Museum ceramics students may use the ceramics room, tools, glazes, and kilns to create their own works of art between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each Wednesday through April 25. Participants may bring their own clay or purchase a 25-pound bag at the Museum for $15. Class size is limited to six students to ensure adequate work space. The fee for the six-week open studio is $50 ($40 for Massillon Museum members).
Massillon Museum classes are open to the public, but pre-registration is required five days in advance. Students may register in person, by mail, or by phone using cash, checks, or credit cards.
