Service Description

In this 6 week course, you’ll discover the joys of making freeform ceramics through the meditative process of handbuilding. You will learn the basics of creating through pinching, coiling, slab construction. Handbuilding is geared toward absolute beginners and returning students alike, and is also great for anyone with a bit of experience who’d like some extra practice. You'll be able to use your skills to create a variety of objects like teacups, vases, bowls, planters, and small sculptures Classes meet once a week for 2 hour sessions. Course fee includes everything you need: clay, use of studio tools, a rainbow of cone 5 glazes, firing, plus open studio hours outside of class for more exploration in clay. Clay must be purchased for practice time. In each class session, you will build on what you learned and made the previous week, so we strongly advise you to make sure you’ll be able to attend all class sessions before signing up. It is especially important that you attend the first class, so if you think you might have to miss week 1, please consider enrolling in another session. We do not offer make up classes at this time. Long nails can make working with clay very frustrating. We recommend cutting them close before attending class. Also, clay is messy. Please dress accordingly and bring along an apron and a towel/rag for wiping your hands throughout the process. See you in class.
