Introduction to Handbuilding – Thursday Evenings with Faryn Fee (3/7-4/25), 5:30 PM- 8:30 PM
Dates: Thursdays, 3/7-4/25
Times: 5:30 PM- 8:30 PM
Price: $360 (glaze, one bag of reclaimed clay, firing, instruction and drop-in open studio time included). Tools ($15 + tax for a toolkit) and additional clay ($10-$35 for a 20-25 lb bag) available for purchase at Clay Studio.
Over the course of 8 weeks, learn how to make creations through the art of handbuilding! Join experienced ceramist and artist Faryn Fee exploring hand building ceramic forms. Designed for beginners, participants will learn how to use coiling, pinching, and slab building techniques to create one of a kind ceramic ware. From simple vases, mugs and reliefs, the sky is the limit. Students will work on their own unique projects influenced by the weekly guided demonstrations and receive personalized techniques to enhance their unique creative direction.
The class will be held in the downstairs classroom. Students will not be allowed to trim or create new work during the last week as it is designated for glazing and wrapping up pieces. Optional lab hours will be available for students who want some independent working time to hone their skills. Age 18+.
Drop-in Lab hours:
Students are welcome to come in during our open studio lab hours to work independently on Tuesdays 3 PM-8 PM and Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays 10 AM-4 PM. Please note that occasional workshops and events may be held during lab hours, in which case some wheels or tables may be occupied. Lab hours are subject to change depending on studio needs.
*In the case that a make-up class must be scheduled, the students will be notified and the class may be held on a different day of the week. A refund or credit will not be issued in the case that a student cannot attend the make-up class.
