The Union County Heritage Museum is sponsoring a Journey Into Clay Pottery Class series that is free to those 55 and older.

The classes, made possible by a grant from Aroha Seeding Vitality Arts, are part of the museum’s lifelong learning program.

Artist Gail Morton will teach eight classes from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays beginning Feb. 17.

The class is limited to 10 persons and masks and social distancing will be practiced.

The classes will include basic hand building, slip transfer designs, use of clay tools, texturizing clay, glazing clay, making hollow sculptural forms and storytelling with clay.

Participants will build a vase, bowls and plates.

Students must attend all classes.

Spaces will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Classes will be held at the Art House at 205 Faulkner Way (formerly Highland).
