Hand Building & Sculpture will focus on developing basic and advanced skills and techniques used in hand built ceramics. We will work on techniques such as slab building, coil building, and the use of molds. We will also play with surface decoration techniques such as sgraffito, slip trailing, transfer printing, and more.

Grow your sculpture skills by working alongside Mary Helen as she shares what she has learned about the art form so far. Create works of art using coils, slabs, molds, and more, and see your imagination come to life during weekly sessions.
