Hand Buidling / Hand Sculpting
Hand building or Hand Sculpting is a technique that allows you to create forms with clay and your hands, without using a wheel.
Think of it as sculpting. Using your hands and tools provided to make mugs, plates and such.
This is a great bonding activity for couples, friends and family vs. our wheel-throwing class because wheel is a bit more challenging and requires more focus. It's also great if you'd like to continue afterwards as it doesn't require buying expensive tools like a potter's wheel.
Wheel Throwing 101
Wheel throwing is a technique of shaping ceramics using a potter's wheel.
At the end of this class you'll learn the basic fundamentals of wheel throwing:
- How to prepare your clay and your body position
- How to center, open and pull a wall and make a vessel, these are the most important fundamentals of using a wheel before you make other objects.
Using a wheel is challenging at first but it is also very fulfilling. That's why for this class, we focus on building your foundations before moving on to more complicated works.
We recommend this class if:
- 1. You're a beginner who may not have a prior experience with the potter's wheel before but want to try if this is something you'd like to pursue.
2. Someone who may have had experience with the wheel but have not been successful with the fundamentals which results in unsuccessful work.
