About Event

This 6-week hand-building group experience will take you through the fundamentals of working clay using only your hands and a small selection of tools.

We'll learn pinching, slab, coiling and sculpture techniques to make a selection of one-of-a-kind pieces. 

For our returning students you will be challenged with larger or slightly more complex makes, and the opportunity to build on the skills learned in Handbuilding 1.0.

You will learn how to prepare your work for firing and glazing and use the studio's incredible selection of premium and bespoke glazes to decorate.

The final week's session will be a show and tell where we'll share snacks and a bevvie and celebrate an exciting term of making.

This class is suitable for beginners and those wanting to step up their handbuilding skills.
