This is a six-week hand building course for beginner and intermediate students.

In this class, students will learn a sculptural approach to hand-building techniques, incorporating your own ideas and developing your skills as you go.  The course will cover how to make pinch pots, coiled pots, slab-built pots, and free form sculptural pieces, with particular attention to forming and joining clay. The class will also explore carving, faceting, texturizing, and using various types of molds.  The last step is surface decoration and the final firing of your pieces.

Cost is $300 which includes the use of tools but does not include the clay which is $40/bag paid to the instructor at the first class.

You will need to bring an apron and towel.

Cancelations: Fully refundable through March 19, 2024.
