About this Event

In this course you’ll learn the basic techniques for constructing pottery and sculpture by hand, off of the potter’s wheel. We’ll go over three main techniques: the pinch method, coil building, and working with slabs. With these methods it’s possible to build a variety of different forms and objects, both functional and sculptural. By the end of this 6 week course, you’ll be taking home multiple pieces of your own that you build during the class. We’ll focus primarily on making functional pieces like cups and plates, but there will be opportunities to branch into your own areas of interest as well.
