Monday Hand building - Jan. 6–Mar. 9, 11 am
Learn the freedom found in hand building. The pace of working in hand building is flexible and freeing. It gives the artist the ability to flow with the project. You can make something very symmetrical and rigid or asymmetrical and wonky. The diversity found in hand-building clay is what makes it fun!
This class is excellent for a broad range of ceramics practitioners—whether a beginner, new to clay, or an experienced wheel thrower looking to expand skillsets. Techniques demonstrated in class are applicable for pottery or sculpture-focused individuals. This class will cover basic hand-building techniques with options to take a more advanced approach in multiple modes of construction, such as pinching, coiling, stacking, adding, and subtracting.
Students are encouraged to bring any ideas of inspiration and learn how to problem-solve through construction with the techniques demonstrated in class.
