Hand Building Pottery with Susan Hickman 
Beginning, continuing and intermediate students
8 weeks $120 non-members, $40 members
Sundays 1-4 pm, Sept 10 – Oct. 29
More fun, functional and funky handbuilding pottery for beginners and intermediate students. Hand building is often the best place to start your clay experience. Any pottery that you throw on the wheel can be hand built, but many other things can only be hand built. This class will cover the basics of hand building pottery, while letting the student create functional and/or fun pottery. Students will be free to choose or modify projects. The class offers success-oriented projects to build or reinforce skills needed to explore this un-limited area of pottery. All basic ceramic hand building techniques demonstrated.
