Classes & Demos in Eugene
These classes are in our Eugene store
Hand-building is often the best place to start your clay experience. Hand building explores many popular methods of clay forming including slab building, pinch pots, and building with coils. By touching and forming clay with these simple unaided methods, you learn the fundamentals of joining clay into cohesive forms. Our hand-building class is open to beginning and continuing students. When we present a specific technique, such as 'soft slab' work, we introduce it with a specific project that teaches the skills needed for that type of work. As you begin to develop your skills, you are able to bring your ideas to fruition. Basic glazing skills will be explored.
