Our Handbuilding classes run for 10 weeks with a rolling admission. You choose when you start. Once you sign up for a class, you are free to drop in while wheel classes are in session and use the handbuilding room* You may also attend our free open studio sessions every Sunday 12:30 - 3pm, 5:30-8 pm and Friday from 10-12:30 pm. Your fee includes pretty much everything.
Taught by Liz Lockett, Patrick Bell and Ara Koh.
Beginning students will work on basic handbuilding steps. For students who have handbuilding experience, teachers will work with each student at their own pace and on mastering more advanced techniques and constructions.
