We will create a decorative arrangement of small pieces or wind bell of ceramic to be suspended from a frame such as driftwood. After it can be strung and hung so as make a tinkling sound in the breeze. Wind chimes have been used for centuries as a way to sooth us and provide us with a sense of peace and calm, associated with religious beliefs, meditation, and creating a serene environment. The symbolism of wind chimes is often tied to good luck, health, and happiness. Join us in our hand-building clay exploration. Dress to mess. Class is suited for students ages 8 – 14 w/a parent, and 15 and up on their own. Supplies include clay, tool sharing, glazing and firing. Forms made will have a drying period before firing, and then glazing. Students will need to return to pick up finished pieces or make shipping arrangements with AFS.
