Sculptural Handbuilding

​This class focuses on turning the fundamentals of handbuilding into pieces of abstract art. Geared towards non-functional ceramic objects, this class will require you to think about shape and movement over utility. Demonstrations on coils, pinching, and slab building will occur throughout the course to help you bring your ideas to life. Some handbuilding experience recommended. Tuition includes 25 lbs. of clay, glazes, firing and open studio time. Each session meets for 5 weeks.
