Discover hand building, which includes slab building, slump molded forms, and throwing on the potter’s wheel. From basic thrown or hand-built forms you’ll create mugs, bowls, and platters. You’ll also learn glazing and decorating techniques to finish your work and develop your own ideas related to functional and non-functional forms.
Please note: to allow social distancing only one student per class will use the pottery wheel, with each student getting 2 classes on the wheel. The majority of the classes will be spent hand building.
