In this class the focus is entirely on hand building techniques from the ground up. We will spend time designing a tea pot and cups set on paper and turning it into a finished form by the end of class. Every aspect from design decisions (based on the end product use) to glaze finish and usability will be worked through using all aspects of hand building, pinch, coil and slab construction. We will work on “bringing a form to market”. If you’re considering what it takes to design and then build to a desired finish, we’ll be covering this in the 8 week course dedicated to the tea pot!*
*All materials are included.
// Registration for the next class session will be Monday, August 1st at 7pm. — $340
