Handbuilding Session - 6 Weeks
This 6-week session is for beginners as well as the more experienced in pottery. We will learn different techniques of handbuilding, which is the work of the clay that is done mainly with the hands and some tools.
Handbuildng allows for a slower pace than throwing and the creation of organic rather than symmetrical pieces. We will explore the pinched pot and coiling technique, as well as alterations (additions and removals). Finally, we will decorate the pieces with underglazes and glazes* in the 6th class.
The price includes a 10kg bag of clay, the two firings, the glazes and the workshop equipment.
You don't know if you'll like it and would like to try before committing to a session? Come to the Handbuilding introduction workshop!
*Glazing means applying glaze on the pieces to change the colour and texture of it and make it impermeable.
Tuesday evenings, from 6 to 9
