Hand Building Courses

$360+GST for a block of 8 classes   |   $195+GST for a block of 4 classes

We look forward to starting our classes again! We will be starting our classes from August 17th. To comply with physical distance recommendations we are hosting only private classes and only one class will be running in the studio at a time.

This class covers the fundamentals of hand-building techniques, starting with pinching, coiling, slab building, paddling, carving, surface decoration and including glazing to complete your pieces. This class teaches techniques to make items of your choosing, so feel free to bring plenty of inspiration! 

Attention is given to the sculptural as well as the functional aspects of pottery; students are self-directed with more one-on-one instruction. Prices of all classes include basic tools and glazes as well as the firing of your creations. 

= Once a week for 2.5 hours each
