CLASS : HANDBUILDING (adult, 8 students, 10 weeks) $350
In this intro class, learn basic handbuilding skills like pinch, coil and slab and more advanced things like paper clay and how to mix techniques. Explore texture by making and using a wide variety of texture tools including found objects and your hands! And learn how to enhance your designs with stains and glazes.
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 on other classes and practice as long as there is 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 and Ara Koh.
Important Note: Liz Lockett's Tuesday night class is a hybrid class and alternates with in person classes and Zoom interactive online classes on a weekly basis. Students who wish to do this as a purely Zoom class have that option once they sign up.
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.
