Handbuilding with clay makes possible a wide range of expression and form. Utilizing a variety of methods including pinch, coil and slab, this five-day hands-on workshop will focus on the development and assembly of clay forms, large and small. We’ll incorporate idea generation, pattern-making, and a variety of support systems for building and drying pieces.
