Hand-building Course

8 Sessions

This course focuses entirely on hand-building and the student does not work on the potters wheel at all.  Enough time is spent on the 3 main techniques of pinching, coiling and slab work so the student understand how to work these techniques and also fully appreciate the potential of each of these. 

Course Objective:
- Get the student comfortable with the three main techniques that constitute the foundation of hand-building i.e pinching, coiling and slab work with special emphasis on slab construction 
- Equip the student with skills needed to complete most clay projects based on hand building
- Introduce the student to different ways of building feet, handles and lids
- Have the student come away at the end of the course with at least 8 complete pieces
