Beginning Handbuilding


Everyone has a story to tell—let’s turn yours into ceramic sculptures. Abstract, figurative, and narrative work can all be explored. Focus on mastering basic hand-building skills and the use of slips, underglaze, and glaze to achieve a colorful palette with which to express yourself. Come ready to share ideas as we develop our unique voices into clay sculpture. All levels are welcome.

Tuition includes access to one Ceramics Open Studio session per week, space prohibiting. Ceramics Open Studio is an opportunity to practice skills outside class. Students should not sign up for a class with the assumption that they will have extra hours to complete work outside of class. Due to limited studio space, Open Studio access is not guaranteed, and students should complete all works during assigned class hours.

Given the complexities of firing, we cannot guarantee student work will be fired in the order in which it was received. Students will be emailed each time the kiln has been fired and unloaded. Because of limited space we can only hold onto finished pieces for three (3) weeks and will discard any unclaimed pieces after the posted date.
