JulWHB2-Intro to Hand Building

July 3 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm

Age 10 and over

This class teaches beginning skills in Hand Building and is a great introduction to working with clay. The class fee is for the whole month which includes (3 hour class) once a week for four weeks from the first meeting.  We will meet once a week at the assigned day and time. You can learn to make both decorative and functional things from stoneware clay using only your hands and a few tools.  (This class does not include instruction in pottery wheel.) The class is repeatable as the instructor will continue to teach new skills and techniques as your own skill grows and assist you as necessary in making the projects you are interested in.  Studio time is available for practice for current and prior students whenever there is space.   Included in the price of the class is enough clay for average usage, all firing and bucket glazes, and a shelf to store your items during the class.  There is a minimum age of 10 to take the Hand Building classes and those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult on the first day.  The first day of the class gives the student a lot of information, approx 30-45 minutes of orientation, so please do not sign up for a class if this is your first time to our studio and you cannot make the first meeting.  Different skills are covered in most class meetings, missing any class time puts the student behind and it is difficult to catch up within the relatively short time frame.   Any pieces made by the student that are left behind for more than 90 days will be discarded unless prior provisions have been made.  If a student misses any classes I will try to slot them into another class within the same week schedule and within the same month as the original class, but this is not always possible.  

*** A bleach solution will be used to disinfect tools and surfaces between students and sessionsIf you have an apron that you’d like to wear feel free to bring it. If you have previously purchased a gift certificate for a class please call the studio or sign up in person for your class.
