About this experience

About this event

This 6-hour course will be spread over 2 classes one week apart and is open to anyone interested.  No previous experience is necessary.

During each three-hour class you will be taught the main fundamentals of hand built pottery.

Each skill and technique taught builds on the previous teaching.

Class #1

Learn how to use the slab roller and use those slabs to make a slump bowl and also set some slabs to dry (and then wrap up) for a leather-hard project at the next session.
Learn how to roll and attach coils, and build a coil pot.


Class #2

Make and raw glaze leather hard slab form (boxy luminary or planter).
Glaze the bisqued pots from last week.

You will learn how to glaze your masterpieces (we have many of colours to choose from).

Pots then go into the kiln again for the last time. We will notify you when your work is ready for pickup.

Please arrive 15 mins early to the first class to allow for intros, getting oriented and ready so we can begin class on time. Subsequent classes, please use your judgment on how early you need to come in order to be ready. We all want to maximize the experience for everyone!

Please also intend to stay to help clean up the work space. Many hands make light work :)
