Hand building On Line Classes for Adult Students

Creating bowls with clay coils. Potters have been using this technique for hundreds of years in all cultures!

Last week marked the start of virtual hand building classes on Zoom. Oh how I have missed interacting with students and teaching clay to adults! In week one of a two part workshop, we worked on a coil pot; part two will feature hand built fruit to sit in the bowl. In this class, students can use real clay and have been given the opportunity to have it fired. All this is happening at Mother Brook Arts in Dedham. A new group of classes will be ready for sign ups soon. Click here for more information on Mother Brook Arts ceramics program. I will be offering one, two and three day workshops.

There is also an option for private or small group clay lessons virtually with any age – kids, teen, adult – just ask and I’ll set something up!
