This new 6 week class led by local ceramicist Jim Wolf Bacerra will take you through the basics of clay handbuilding techniques. You will learn and practice specific pinch, slab, and coil skills, but each piece you create will also bear your own unique touch. Building, surface texturing, and glazing will all be introduced. Students should already be comfortable preparing and handling clay for working and glazing. Please plan to attend all six classes as knowledge will build on the previous week's practice.
All materials are provided. Please dress comfortably in clothes that are easily laundered.
