Pottery Handbuilding Class

Instructor:  Amanda Ontiveros

Students will gain hands-on experience with building techniques such as pinch pot, coiling, and slump molds, but mostly working with slabs.  Students will practice decoration methods and glazing.  Each student will learn some basic skills and explore their own ideas.  All necessary materials are included in the registration costs, including bisque and glaze firing. No previous clay experience necessary.

Clay will be provided to complete one or two basic projects.  Additional clay for larger or multiple projects can be purchased at the class.

Tools are provided, but an exacto knife may be brought in for more precise cuts.  A large bowl can be brought in to use for slump mold.  You will also need a hand towel and clothes that can get dirty.  Aprons are available.
