Beyond Basic Handbuilding

An intermediate level class – basic handbuilding experience is necessary.
Coiling, soft and hard slab construction and extruding techniques are just the beginning. You will be challenged to create complex forms using basic skills, exciting templates and embellishing designs with multiple parts, layered textures or slips. Decisions regarding concept and design will determine the flow of each class. Projects may include boxes with drawers, woven baskets, or functional sculpture inspired by nature and animals. Studio time outside of class is strongly suggested to build skills as well as finish class projects. Class fee includes one 25 lb. bag of clay and use of specialty tools needed during class.
