In Handbuilding Practice & Play, students will have access to our ceramics studio and a knowledgeable instructor who will give weekly demonstrations that will guide students along their creative journey. This class is appropriate for students new to the field as well as the seasoned ceramicist looking to work on independent projects. Beginners to the field of handbuilding will learn the basics of ancient techniques: pinch, slab and coil in order to learn a variety of skills that will yield unique ceramic vessels and sculptures of all shapes and sizes. Students will also have the opportunity to explore surface decorations and glazing techniques. All work will be bisque and glaze fired. No previous ceramics experience necessary—this class is open to all levels. Students will receive a complimentary 25pound bag of cone 6 clay, but may need to purchase additional materials for their personal projects. All other materials and tools will be provided.
