In this 6-session beginner course, students will learn basic handbuilding, including pinch, coil, and slab techniques, and create whimsically functional or sculptural ceramics. You will also learn about surface decorations and the glazing process. This course is designed to provide an artistic and creative space for BIPOC community members to explore clay together.
All materials, tools, and equipment will be provided. Please bring a towel and apron that can get dirty. Wear layered clothing to adjust for comfort.
Suitable for beginners, ages 18 and older.
Classes take place at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, Olympia, WA. Please enter through the alley behind the school building.
Space is limited, and new students will be prioritized so that as many community members as possible may participate in this opportunity.
