Are you interested in clay but unsure where to start? Sign up for this five-week beginner handbuilding class and learn the basic skills for creating ceramic sculpture and handbuilt pottery through a series of projects and demonstrations. This class will introduce the three foundational methods of handbuilding—coiling, pinching, and slab-building—to provide the base for any project you might imagine. These classes have plenty of guidance for beginners, making them ideal if you have little to no experience with clay and want to test your interest and grow your skills. We recommend you take a beginner class two or more times (within one quarter, or over consecutive quarters) to build your skills and prepare for Intermediate-to-Advanced classes and beyond. Wear old clothes, bring a bucket no larger than one gallon, and a beginner’s set of tools to the first class. Tool kits are available for $27 at NCC. Lab fee includes one 25 pound bag of clay up to a cost of $25, all glazing materials, firings, and open studio access. Formerly known as the “Three Graces of Handbuilding.”

June 17 – July 15
