Intro to Handbuilding 2021

Thursdays from 6-8:30pm
January 7th to February 11th 2021

This six week course will introduce students to essential clay hand-building techniques. Initially students will develop their skill though a series of directed projects, before moving onto creating unique self-directed clay artwork. Additionally, students will be instructed in a wide variety of decorating techniques, including underglaze painting, sgraffito, relief carving, as well as learning glaze dipping and brushing techniques. Through the combination of these lessons students will gain a deeper understanding of the complete clay making process and have fun while creating unique projects! All skill levels welcome!

Clay at Home Policies

ALL TOOLS ARE TO BE RETURNED WHEN DROPPING OFF THE WORK FOR FIRING! 

Please sign up at least 24 hours in advance online before zoom call session. All kits will be available for pickup between Tuesday August 4th and Thursday August 6th during Gallery hours.

Please note, due to the nature of working with clay, pieces created may crack or explode during drying or firing. We will do our very best to prevent this from happening at all stages of making, but the Gallery cannot guarantee that finished work will be free of issues.

The Gallery does not offer refunds on the Clay @ Home Kits.  Contact our Public Programs Manager, Shannon Quigley, at shannon@theclayandglass.ca if you encounter any issues or problems.
