In hopes of building our ceramics program, the Alliance is bringing in a slab roller to help our students with their hand-building techniques. Most traditional slab rollers take up a lot of floor space, are very heavy and not portable. This new style of slab roller is vertical so it doesn't take up the learning space within the classroom and is also on wheels for easy storage.
This piece of ceramics equipment will benefit all art students in 6th-8th grade every trimester they are in art (approximately 150 students per trimester). Students love working with clay and it is a large part of our curriculum. This roller allows our students to build larger and more structurally sound hand built pieces of art in a much easier and faster way.
