Handbuilding- Taster

A great taster lesson to get you in the mood for handbuilding! You will be taught a few techniques that cover the basics of hand building. These techniques include: Pinching and press moulding. This is a 2 hour class. 


Please note this session is taught on a workbench. You will not be using the wheel. 


Plan of action:

This session will be spent learning how to make up to 3 items of different sizes. 1 medium (Mug/Bowl) and 2 small (pinch pots). Examples will be shown at the start of the class. 

After this session your pieces will be glazed with a shiny white glaze and fired in Melisa’s kiln. This will take 2-3 weeks to complete. Once completed, Melisa will contact you to pick up your pieces. 


Whats included in the price?

All materials, glazes, x2 kiln firings and tuition are included within this price. Please wear comfortable clothing and please make sure your nails are cut short as they will interefe with the clay.
