Pots Off the Wheel: Hand Building Functional Pottery


Explore inventive hand-building techniques for making functional pottery in this fun, informative class. Students will be introduced to a variety of projects that utilize slabs, extruded elements, and pinching techniques. Learn to create your own simple templates and bisque molds. Follow along with demonstrations to discover the relaxed pace and creative potential of hand building. Students will have the opportunity to experiment with underglaze pencils and underglaze colors, in addition to standard high-fire glazes. All levels are welcome.

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.

*We will not be offering Ceramics Open Studio this summer due to the high volume of children's classes. Your tuition covers your class time only.
