INTRO TO HAND-BUILDING  (CERAMICS)

Members: $180 • Non-Members: $200
This class will teach the basics of working clay by hand and small tools to produce sculptural shapes or vessels. Before potters had the wheel, they were creating beautiful pots and clay forms using clay, their hands and fingers, and basic hand tools. The three most common forms of creating hand built pots are pinch-pot, coiling and slab techniques. Most do not realize the infinite world of hand building and the artistic possibilities it opens.

INTRO TO WHEEL THROWING  (CERAMICS)

Members: $180 • Non-Members: $200
Gain fundamental skills and build the confidence needed to start your journey in wheel throwing clay and creating pottery vessels.
