About this event

In this pottery session you will learn about the fundamentals of hand building including some of the basic steps in the ceramic process.

This is a 2 Hour session in which you will be give 1.5lbs of clay to create a beginner ceramic vessel(s) of your choice.

The first 15-20 minutes I will focus on guiding you through and demonstrating the basics of hand-building.

This includes:

- Clays and their uses (earthenware vs. stoneware) + clay preparation + clay stages

- Types of forms

- Pinching, coiling, and slab work methods

The rest of the session is your time to really get 'messy' and build your ceramic piece. This is your time to create freely with as much assistance from myself as you'd like.


- Please be respectful towards other participants.
