Hand-building in clay is working off the wheel. Most commonly we instruct projects with sheets of clay (slab), that we run through equipment called a slab roller. Students can complete a project(s) which is great fun and gives you the opportunity to create very interesting and unique items that have lots of personality. You can get very artistic and imaginative with your work. Hand building is for those that want to learn quickly and see the results in class, so there is instant gratification.
With a skilled hand builder, we teach the techniques needed to create handmade items such as coil, pinch or slab pots, or even jewelry, spoons, and cups.
We’ll take you through the basics – how to pinch coil and slab. One hour will be tuition and the next two hours will be supervised practice.
3 hours and 3 people max.
Your finished piece will be ready to collect from the studio after 15 days or we can organise postage at an extra cost.
Price Rs2000 /person – Includes 2 final glazed pieces.
Please Note : For cancellations we allow up to 24 hours prior to your class time although we are unable to refund the deposit for your class if you cancel later than 24 hours. We are happy to re schedule your class if we have the space/time slot available.
Terms & Conditions
Pottery is a safe and fun activity and we will assist you during your workshop. However, we work with some relatively sharp tools and friction from the wheel may cause discomfort to your hands. If you feel discomfort, speak to us immediately. Craftsy mix is not liable for injuries incurred during classes.
As you will experience, clay is a beautiful material to work with. However, during the process of firing and glazing, clay-like all-natural materials, can be unpredictable and sometimes pieces can crack or break during firing.
We’ll try our best to prevent it from happening but it is something that happens, even to our most accomplished potters. In the unfortunate case, your piece does break, our teachers will remake it for you free of charge / will provide another piece of similar shape and size.
