Get your hands messy! Learn basic hand-building techniques such as pinching, coiling, slab rolling, sculpting, carving, and attaching in this beginner’s class.
Use the skills learned in this course to create cups and mugs, bowls, and plates that are fully functional. Once glazed, which you will also learn in this class, your pieces are microwave, dishwasher, and ovenproof.
If your interests lay in other areas such as jewelry and sculpture, these techniques can be used for projects exploring those areas as well.
Two specialty decorative surface techniques will be introduced as well: mishima and sgraffito, along with instruction in glazing techniques.
All clay used in this class is non-toxic and food-safe. Your creations will be ready for pick up approximately a week after the last class.
Participants will receive 10KG of clay and all the tools are provided.
