Clay Handbuilding

What is handbuilding? Handbuilding is a ceramics technique that allows you to create forms with clay and your hands, without using a throwing wheel.

Clay is fun! Fun for all ages! Creating with your hands feels so good. This is not a walk in activity but offered through workshops which we offer monthly!

All Ages & Skill Levels

We provide all of the necessary tools for the job. Pottery instructors will guide thru the whole process.

Hand-Building projects need two visits

First time you build & create. Second visit you glaze your clay project for best results.

Learn different hand-building techniques

Pinch potting, coiling, slab rolling, molding & more. After two weeks you are able to glaze your pottery with our colourful glazes.
