Level II Clay Hand-Building Workshop (Winter 2023)
I've now taught enough workshops that I'm getting many requests for a more advanced class to build on what we've learned in previous workshops- here it is!
In this 6 week course, we will build on the fundamentals of hand building with clay. Rather than working with a potter's wheel, participants will use the method of slab rolling and assembling to make function wares. All tools and materials such as clay, glaze, and tools are included in the workshop cost.
Participants that have previous clay hand-building knowledge are welcomed! We will build upon our understanding of functional wares and create larger and more refined pieces. This is to include, dinner sets, serving dishes, and more sculptural pieces. Participants will also get to provide more input into clay and glaze options. Expect to leave with many handbuilt ceramics to give as gifts or keep for yourself!
This workshop will be hosted at the new location of 'The New Local' on Pearl Street: a non-profit art gallery and community art space.
