HAND-BUILDING FUNDAMENTALS

MAY 21, 2017 – MAY 27, 2017

This hands-on workshop is designed to motivate students to experiment with new forms and methods of construction. Geared toward creative expansion, students use hand building techniques such as coil and pinch, and hard and soft slab construction to generate pottery components. A collaborative, process-over-product and progress-over-perfection mentality is the class mantra. Daily exercises include instructor demonstrations, class discussion, presentations of student’s visual resource material, critiques of work, and plenty of brainstorming/problem-solving sessions. Open to all skill levels.
