April Beginning Handbuilding - Santa Monica
- Class Outline
Get creative with this relaxing, fun, beginner-friendly class. Classes meet weekly for two hours for a total of four sessions, with open studio time every day for you to practice on your own. See our schedule below.
During this four-week course, you will learn the basics of hand building through techniques like pinching, coiling, and slab construction. We will also go over surface decoration and get creative with glazing. Handbuilding is a freeform, meditative process and you'll be able to use your skills to create a variety of objects like teacups, vases, bowls, and planters.
This class is perfect for those who have no prior experience with clay, as well as wheel throwers who would like to try something different. The fee for this course includes covers instruction, clay, tools, glazes, and firing, plus open studio hours outside of class for more exploration in clay.
Classes are two hours long and run for four consecutive weeks. We strongly advise you to make sure you’ll be able to attend all class sessions before signing up.
