Ceramic Techniques – Winter 24


Ceramic Techniques is the perfect class for adults to learn all the basic handbuilding methods in order to sculpt, fire, and glaze their own unique handmade ceramic pieces.



Ceramic Techniques 
Ryan Minkoff

Ceramic Techniques will focus on teaching the basics of sculpting with handbuilding techniques such as slabs, coils, pinch pots, and molding. You will also learn how to use a combination of those various techniques and how to attach pieces by scoring and slipping the pieces. We’ll cover everything you need to know about sculpting, wedging clay, working with tools, glaze vs. underglaze, and how to finish your piece. Come into class with your own ideas of things you would like to sculpt, or try out some of the suggested projects that we will provide for you.

Great for both those who are looking for an introduction to handbuilding and those who are more experienced, looking to improve their skills, or to have dedicated studio time to work on ceramic projects. This class meets once a week for 10 weeks.

A $20 registration fee will be applied to the total. 

Materials: Tools and glazes are provided, but you will need your own block of clay which you can buy at Art Lab for $24.46 on your first day of class.
