A88 Fabulous Hand-Built Forms

Learn to create hand-built 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 dimensional forms, both functional and non-functional. Decoration techniques of texturing, sgraffito, stencil, resist, and image layering will be taught. There will be a focus on creating whimsical and self-expressive forms, with easy techniques to go from simple to complex design.
