Handbuilding 2 is the perfect class for people who want to build on their existing handbuilding skills to make more complex projects, and gain more technical skills. Projects will explore several sculptural techniques to create a tile image and a small bust. Students will also be guided in using slabs and coils to create functional items like pouring vessels, vases, and lidded jars. More advanced glazing and surface design techniques will be offered, such as under glazing, water etching, and wax resist patterning with glazes.
This class will meet once per week for 8 consecutive weeks, starting on April 25th.
Glazes, firing charges and one bag of clay per student are included in the class price. Similar to membership at Cascade, students can enjoy 24/7 access to the studio to work on projects. Community tools are provided or you may bring your own tools. Students get one 24 x 18 x 16 inch shelf to store projects and materials.
