Intro to hand building techniques


with Bonnie Hislop
Sat 22 June 2019 | 11am - 4:00pm

In this class, students will be guided through the fundamentals of hand building ceramics to create functional and sculptural wares.

Participants will aim towards 1 -3 works which may take the form of planter pots, mugs, plates, vases or sculptural pieces.

Techniques introduced are pinch pot, slab work, coiling and surface decoration.

This is a beginners/ refresher course and can be done by itself to create unglazed peices, or as part of the full weekend!

If you are familiar with Hand Building Techniques consider instead the workshop on Sunday 23rd July.
