This six week series will introduce you to the basics behind handbuilding.  Students will learn how to go from a pinchpot to a pitcher, from a slab to a plate, from a coil to a mug. Through learning how to build and apply techniques you will be able to create a piece you desire too!   We will discuss brainstorming and sketching through clay.  Students will be given prompts to expand upon or given the opportunity to explore hand building on their own.

This class will be held in person in our spacious clay classroom. Students are required to wear masks and maintain social distance.
