Exploring Handbuilt Functionality

This hands-on workshop will motivate you to experiment with new forms and methods of construction. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced students will use handbuilding techniques such as coil, pinch, and hard- and soft-slab construction to generate pottery components. Collaboration will be an option, and our mantras will be “process over product” and “progress over perfection.” The workshop will include demonstrations, class discussions, informal presentations of students’ visual resource material, in-process critiques of student work, and plenty of brainstorming/problem-solving sessions. Mid-range red stoneware, electric firing. All levels. Code 01CB
