In this class, Matthew will introduce beginning students to a variety of hand building techniques that can be utilized to make both sculptural and functional forms- or a combination of both! Beginning students will delve into basic projects to build their skill set. Students with prior handbuilding experience or who have taken the prior class handbuilding session will focus on a specific vessel or sculpture project of their choosing over the intensive session.

  • First bag of clay
  • All firing fees for work created in ALL classes are included in the class fee  (size limit- items must not measure more than 20” in any direction)
