Learn how to make more advanced pottery forms by combining basic handbuilding techniques (coil, pinch, slab) with bisque molds (uniquely made by you!). You will hone your handbuilding skills while learning how the bisque mold can introduce larger, more complex forms and help you to create multiples of the same object. This class will focus on developing forms, and surfaces will be addressed as a result of the bisque mold process.
This 5 week workshop will take place on Saturdays, 05/15, 05/22, 05/29, 06/05, 06/12, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
