A77 Fabulous Hand-Built Forms II

Go from flat to fabulous in this stand-alone class that can also be taken as extension of Fabulous Hand-Built Forms I. Learn to hand build forms in clay, using low-tech tools for high-tech results. Start by making clay texturing tools to be used on later projects while learning the basics of hand building; pinch, coil and slab construction. Then move on to creating simple templates to transition from flat to three-dimensional forms. Build plates, platters, tumblers, decorative containers, pitchers, mugs, and a project of choice. Decoration techniques of texturing, sgraffito, stencils, inlay, resist, and image layering will be taught.
