About this Event

**You must bring two oranges (aim for similar sizes) and 2 plastic bags (produce bags are perfect for this).
If you are an at-risk person, please contact me so I can pick up the oranges and bags or provide a substitute.
More challenging than a handbuilding 101 - This is the first class of a two-part beginner’s hand building class to learn the full ceramics process with hands on help from the teacher. You will start by learning how to hand build a ceramics piece by slab-rolling, coiling, and/or pinching, glazing a piece, and ending with a finished product.
In this class you will:
Hand build a ceramic pumpkin with two circular forms
Choose the desired technique for hand building your ceramic piece
Learn how to attach pieces together by scoring and using slip
Learn how to thoroughly clean the hand building work tables after finishing your ceramic piece
Learn the process of making ceramics at DMS to correctly store and place pieces on the shelves at each stage of the production process
Briefly get insight into the next steps taught in the following classes, Beginners Glazing 103
MAKE SURE TO SIGN UP FOR BEGINNERS GLAZING 103 TO FINISH YOUR PIECE (at least a week to 10 days after this class)
