This class will cover how to make a portable canvas covered wedging board for the home studio. We will be modeling our boards off the ones at The ArtsCenter’s studio which are not only used for wedging but for many hand-building activities.
Canvas covered boards are easy to clean, durable, and are great as a designated work surface for clay. This class will be a 3 hour class held online through Zoom. I will demonstrate how to make a board and there will be time for any questions throughout the class and at the end. Students are welcome to use scraps of plywood or untreated wood boards as long as they are 1/2 thick. I recommend they be 2 feet long on one side so students can use them to wedge or hand-build on kitchen countertops which are usually 2 feet deep.
