Clay Handbuilding: Wednesday Morning

Member Price: $170.00

SKU: N/A Category:

Connect with clay as you learn basic hand building techniques. We will use simple approaches to create forms, functional and decorative (pinch,coil,slab,slump). We will discuss different ways, philosophical and technical, to approach the clay and encourage finding your own imagery and marks to add narrative surface interest.

If you are new to FCAC, please see the campus map at the bottom of the page for studio location.
