Beginning Handbuilding Pottery

Join us for a fun and relaxing 4-week beginning handbuilding course. In this course, we will cover basic techniques of hand-building including soft and firm slab construction using templates and slump molds. We will utilize surface decorating techniques like adding hand-built accessories such as handles, knobs and feet to forms. We will also experiment with texture using found objects, stamps and fabric.

Each class meets once a week for 2½ hours and will begin with a sample project demonstration followed by time to work on your own project. You'll have the option of either making the sample project, or creating your own design using the techniques demonstrated. Your imagination is the limit!

Although this is a beginning level class, it's appropriate for all levels of experience, more advanced students will receive technical assistance and feedback as desired.

Included in the cost is everything you need while you are in class*: basic pottery tools, buckets, and towels, 25 lbs. of clay, 1 free square of glaze firing, and open studio time during our office hours to practice what you are learning.

Class Size: Minimum 4 / Maximum 8

Class Cost **

4 Weeks $150

Glaze Firing (Cone 6 or 10)

Base Rate: $12 per square foot
