Beginning Handbuilding

Whether you are just starting to explore clay as a medium or hoping to diversify your existing clay skills, Beginning Handbuilding has a lot to offer. In this class, we will explore multiple handbuilding techniques (such as slab work, coil building, and pinch pots) as we learn to handbuild various functional forms. We will practice adding our own personal touches to our work through different surface treatments including texturing, underglazing, and glazing. Join us for the fun, the inspiration, and the community!
