Handbuilding for Beginners

Please join us at The Clay Studio for a 6-week beginner’s handbuilding course.

Learning alongside other newcomers to ceramics, you will explore a range of handbuilding techniques.

If you are looking to dive into the joy of handbuilding, then this course is for you. It’s an ideal opportunity to get to know clay and be equipped with basic handbuilding skills, before commiting to a full term of weekly classes. Perhaps you have been to one of our half day workshops and are keen to take the next step.

Over these six sessions you will learn to create your own work using the pinching, coiling and slab-building methods. In addition, your course tutor Lara Gorlach, will demonstrate a range of decoration and surface texture techniques to try out.

The Beginners Handbuilding Course is open to all adults (18+) and runs on consecutive Sundays for 3 hours each session.

Course cost includes instruction and refreshments. In addition any finished pieces you make which will be weighed and charged a small fee per 100g to cover the cost of materials and firing.
