Hand Building

 

In this pottery hand building class you learn to work with clay from start to finish using several techniques like pinch, coil, slab and sculpting. You also learn to make and fasten separate finishing pieces like lids, handles and knobs. The end result will be your own clay creation. 

Projects include: plates, vases, trays. coasters, bowls, planters, garlic jars, lanterns, etc. This class is for all ages and skill levels. 

Our pottery class runs every few weeks. Days vary based on demand. Contact me, or join our mailing list to see what classes are offered this month.

If you have a group of a least four people, make a reservation for your own private pottery class. A hand building class can be turned into a pottery party to have fun with friends, a ladies night out, an anniversary, a team building activity, a family reunion, a birthday celebration, etc.
