Learn about the fundamental skills in hand building with clay. Students will start with simple projects using pinch methods, coil building, and slab construction to build functional and sculptural objects before planning out projects independently. Demos and discussions will include how to use the pottery tools to your greatest advantage, introduce texture and design, and how to push the limitations of the clay. This course is great for any skill level from brand new to clay to the intermediate student.
