6:00pm – 9:00pm

Adult
Discover hand building, which includes slab building, slump molded forms, and throwing on the potter’s wheel.

From basic thrown or hand-built forms you’ll create mugs, bowls, and platters. You’ll also learn glazing and decorating techniques to finish your work and develop your own ideas related to functional and non-functional forms.

In order to help ensure the comfort and safety of all visitors and staff, the WAG has a mandatory face covering policy in place. We ask that all guests aged 5 and older wear a mask, scarf, or bandana that covers the nose and mouth while in public spaces at the Gallery.

As per our reopening protocols, we encourage physical distancing, tables/chairs/supplies are sanitized frequently, and all staff and patrons are asked to self-screen before coming.

You can read more about our safety measures here.

Please note there will be no class on March 28 to allow clay to dry for final bisque firing.

Instructor

Disa Haldorson

Disa Haldorson is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in Functional Ceramics, Sculptural Ceramics, Installation, and Performance Art. In her role at WAG Studio, she enjoys guiding both adults and children to find their own unique creative expression and voice.

Graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours in 2015, her personal practice explores lesbian and gay politics and how the queer community navigates heteronormative societies. Her primary focus has been to shed light on and explore masculine of centre lesbian identities, societal perceptions, and the gender roles they are assumed to inhabit. Her work strives to confront the viewer with their preconceived notions of lesbianism and lesbian culture as well as the idealized female figures seen throughout straight culture.
