Creative Pottery - Handbuilding Courses

Our handbuilding courses are six weeks of fun for those who enjoy freedom and flexibility in clay. Our base curriculums explore three main ceramic techniques of pinch, slab, and coil building. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of the handbuilding process from start to finish. For students with handbuilding experience, we will be going beyond slab, coils, and pinching to cover hollowing, drying, sculpture glazing, and techniques for creating expressive dimensional surfaces in our Table-top Sculpture course.

This series of six 2-hour classes includes an additional two hours of Open Studio time each week. Specific skills are covered in depth, and registration is required to attend.

Note: We keep our garage door open for air flow. Please dress warmly if the weather is looking chilly.


September - November courses begin September 25th
