Handbuilding is an excellent introduction into the art of ceramics. All levels of experience with ceramics and handbuilding are welcome. This course will expose students to a variety of handbuilding techniques, including pinch pots, coil construction and slab building. We will explore surfacing techniques like using slip decoration and glazing.
Beginning students will gain foundational ceramic skills with an emphasis on creating functional pottery. Advanced students will have the chance to delve deeper into handbuilding, exploring sculpture and further developing their personal style.
14 years and older welcome. Registration closes 3 days before start of class.
We highly recommend that students bring their own towel and apron.
Course includes one 25-LB bag of clay, bisque, and glaze firing.
To meet the Washington Safe Start COVID-19 protocols we can only permit 5 students and one to two instructors in the studio at one time. ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR A MASK WHEN INSIDE THE BUILDING.
