Beginner + : Traditional Hand Building Techniques

In this workshop we’ll cover 4 of the oldest techniques in ceramic work, all of which can be done at home without any fancy equipment, and any of which can help produce just about anything you want to make out of clay. 

About an hour will be spent on each of the following: 

Slab Pots
-How to fling a perfect slab without a slab roller or rolling pin
– How to shape that flat slab into just about anything 

Coil Pots
– How to roll the perfect coil without an extruder
– How to build forms intentionally with those coils
Pinch Pots
– Finding the pattern and rhythm of a simple pinch pot 

– The ways in which it can be so much more than a simple pinch pot
Carved Pots 

– shaping a piece through reduction
– Clay, at a certain stage, can be whittled like wood.  We’ll talk about making what we want, by carving away what we don’t. 

 

Each process will be demoed and discussed, and participants will make a small piece out of each technique.

  • How to make your own slips, washes, and underglazes
  • Sgraffito and Incising – two of the most traditional carving techniques. 
  • Marbling, slip trailing, combing, and more! 

*Small fresh pots will be provided to practice on.
