This class is for students who are familiar with the basic handbuilding methods of coil, pinch, and slab construction and would like to advance their technique in these areas. Individual attention and group discussions of design elements along with observation of historical and contemporary ceramics will help to guide students towards developing a strong personal style. Weekly demonstrations will focus on both building methods and surface decoration that move beyond the basics and encourage risk taking. While ideal for those with some experience, all levels of students are welcome and all will be guided at their level. Includes access to open studio time for duration of class. Take 10% off this class if you finalize your registration 3 or more weeks before the start date.
