Introduction to handbuilding

Open to all skill levels, a new 10-class handbuilding session begins Sunday, June 10. Its focus is on three basic handbuilding techniques – coiling/pinching, slab building, and extruding. Participants make a variety of vessels using these different approaches and are encouraged to find inspiration for design ideas from everyday objects.
