Course Detail: HACE - Handbuilding Ceramics

This is an introductory class about constructing ceramic vessels out of flat slabs of clay. We typically work with soft slabs. Each session you will learn a new technique in ceramic handbuilding. For the majority of our classes, we will be using our slab roller to make sheets of clay and using those sheets to cut out pieces. Each piece will be joined with another slab. Then those sheets of clay can be used to make 2D and 3D ceramic objects. Ms. Brandy loves to make ceramic works that are functional. You may follow along with projects presented by Ms. Brandy or bring in pictures of projects you would need help in deciding the best way to build it. This class includes up to 25 pounds of clay, firing and glazing. We use a low-fire earthenware clay for our classes which will be food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe!
