Handbuilding is an ancient pottery-making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools. The most common handbuilding techniques are pinch pottery, coil building, and slab building. In our classes we create functional art from slabs.The finished clay must dry in studio 7-10 days before firing. There will be an additional fee if you would like to return to paint and refire with glaze.
