Handbuilding Functional Forms from Home

Develop your skills from home. We’ll learn several techniques in handbuilding including slab and coil building in order to create fun and functional items for your home. Projects may include jars, bowls and butter dishes. You’ll learn to finish your work with decorative underglazes. The Studio can also apply a clear glaze to your work if desired.

New summer 2021! If you are registered for a summer ceramics class or have purchased a bisque firing pass, you can sign-up for a slot to glaze your work outside the Studio during our Tuesday/Thursday evening drop/off pick-up times starting July 13. The outdoor glazing is included in your class registration. You’ll receive additional information once you’ve registered for the class.

If you prefer our staff to glaze your work, you can also buy a glaze firing pass. Additional glazing offerings can be found here
