Fall Beginner Hand-building: Monday Mornings, 9:30-12:30, September 9th - October 28th

Have you always dreamed of making beautiful pottery using traditional hand-building techniques? Our 8-week class is the perfect introduction to making your own functional pottery!

Our friendly, experienced instructors create a supportive atmosphere that encourages exploration and skill-building at your own pace. Through the course you’ll learn these essential techniques:

  • use coiling, slab-building, and pinching techniques
  • making basic forms like cups, bowls, platters, and vases
  • trimming and finishing your pieces
  • how to make and attach handles
  • surface decoration and glazing

Students who are enrolled in our 8-week classes also get free access to the studio during designated Open Studio times: come in and practice the techniques that you learn in class!

At the end of this 8-week class, you’ll come away with a new-found appreciation for this ancient art form, confidence in your new skills... and your very own handmade pottery!

And the fine print:

  • While this class is geared towards beginners, everyone is welcome.
  • Our beautiful studio has just about everything you need, except for a basicset of pottery tools. Bring your own or purchase one of sets put together for us by Artist & Craftsman Supply (available at the studio on your first day of class).
  • Clay is charged separately; one bag costs $20 is perfect for most students for 8 weeks.
  • While we highly recommend that you attend all sessions in a series in order to get the most out of the class, we also understand that you may need to miss a class. If this is your first time at our studio, please make sure you are able to attend your first class date.

This class is taught by Laura Skiles-Bundy.
