January 7 – February 13, 2020 (Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10am-12pm)

Handbuilding techniques were the first techniques employed to make the earliest ceramic pieces, and they are still the most versatile and accessible techniques today. This six-week course is designed for ceramic artists of all levels. Through demonstrations and projects we will cover slab, coil, pinch and solid construction methods to build functional and sculptural forms. Projects will be tailored to fit each student’s skill and experience level. In the last half of the class students will learn about glazes and glaze firings and there will be gas reduction and electric glaze firing options.

Tuesday classes will be demonstration and project introduction time. Thursday classes will be more open studio style student work time with some guidance from the teacher. There will also be Open Studio time available to students on Sundays, 11am to 1pm, with no teacher guidance.
