Handbuilding Clay Vessels and Sculptures
Apr 23 - May 21 | mon | 6:00PM - 9:00PM
All levels welcome
One bag of clay included with firing and glaze.
5-week class. Beginners welcome.
This is the perfect class for the beginner who wants to learn to create bowls, dishes, vases, tiles and more without the use of the potter’s wheel. Experienced hand builders also welcome. Sculptural forms will also be created and how they may be transformed into utilitarian objects. We will create basic but fun forms using hand building and then learn to add that personal touch using sculpting, alteration, stamps, stencils, painting, slip, stains, sgraffito, found objects and more.
