Handbuilding with Clay
There’s nothing like handbuilding with clay to teach you to slow down and be grounded in the moment. In this weekly class, we will learn the three basic techniques of handbuilding: pinching, coil building and slab building. We will apply and combine these skills to create functional ceramics such as mugs, bowls, pitchers and serving pieces. The class may also be used as an open studio to work on the project of your choice. All materials and tools will be provided. No previous clay experience necessary.
Each session is four weeks long. $50 to sign up. $225 per session for new students, $175 per session for returning students.
SIGN UP for Wednesday class (6-8pm). Next session starts August 7, 2019.

Handbuilding with Clay: Making Unique Terracotta Planters
January & February 2018
Hello, clay lovers! In this class, we will be making our own decorative tools and then using them to hand build. We will create bisque stamps from clay that will help us to create personalized and unique textures and patterns on clay slabs and then use the slabs to make plant pots. We’ll have a small selection of succulents available on the last day of class for you to plant in your new pots. All skill levels welcome.
