Over the course of 8 weeks, learn how to make creations through the art of handbuilding! In this class students will join instructor Reena Bajaj to explore the basics of handbuilding and surface decoration. Participants will learn how to use coiling, pinching, and slab building techniques to create one of a kind ceramic ware. This class is designed for handbuilding beginners. Students may work on independent projects or be guided by weekly demonstrations.
The class will be held in the downstairs classroom. Students will not be allowed to trim or create new work during the last week as it is designated for glazing and wrapping up pieces. Optional lab hours will be available for students who want some independent working time to hone their skills. Age 18+.
