What is Handbuilding?

“Handbuilding is an ancient pottery-making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools. The most common handbuilding techniques are pinch pottery, coil building, and slab building” -Ceramic Arts Network

About this class:

This class will introduce the basic handbuilding techniques used to build functional pottery forms.  The class will focus mostly on slab building techniques using bisque molds and stamps, but will also cover the basics of pinch pots and coil building.  No previous experience in clay is needed for this class.  At the end of this class, you will have created a full dinnerware set for two (possibly more!)
