Discover hand building, which includes slab building, slump molded forms, and throwing on the potter’s wheel.

From basic thrown or hand-built forms you’ll create mugs, bowls, and platters. You’ll also learn glazing and decorating techniques to finish your work and develop your own ideas related to functional and non-functional forms.
