This workshop will introduce the basic techniques of hand-building to form functional pottery forms. Hand-building is an ancient pottery making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools. All experience levels are welcome. Tea and coffee will be served this morning. Ages 18+ only.
Participants typically complete 1-3 stoneware projects within the allotted class time. Following the class, the instructor will take the pieces to be glazed (optional) and kiln-dried. Everyone will be notified via email when their pieces are available for pick-up from the front desk, approximately 3-4 weeks after class. Please note that HOTEL GUESTS may arrange to have their finished piece shipped to a domestic address. Please pre-purchase the flat rate shipping fee on the ticket page if you require this service.
