In Full Spectrum Handbuilding, students will have access to our ceramics studio and a knowledgeable instructor who will give weekly demonstrations that will guide students along their creative journey. This class is appropriate for students new to the field as well as the seasoned ceramicist looking to work on independent projects. Beginners to the field of handbuilding will learn the basics of ancient techniques such as pinch, slab and coil in order to learn a variety of skills that will yield unique ceramic vessels and sculptures of all shapes and sizes. Students will also have the opportunity to explore surface decorations and glazing techniques. Students with previous experience will have the opportunity to explore advanced building techniques that will allow for greater height, volume, and form. By combining slab and coil, students will learn how to push their work into three dimensions with greater ease. No previous ceramics experience necessary—this class is open to all levels. Materials and tools will be provided. Enrollment in this course includes additional access to one monitored Open Studio session per week; either on Thursday afternoons from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Friday from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, or Sunday evenings from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
