VA7 Virtual: Handbuilding in Clay II


Explore handbuilding clay at home in this virtual course featuring a series of personalized prerecorded video demonstrations, exciting live Zoom presentations, and fun class exercises. We will be building on learned techniques to hand-form clay through traditional and not-so-traditional building, texturing, and glazing practices. You will be guided through the handbuilding process while celebrating your individual style and interests. This course is a continuation of VA Virtual: Handbuilding in Clay I, although students new to clay are welcome. This course includes live Zoom class sessions and prerecorded content. A detailed and strict drop-off for firing procedure, complete with size, weight, and amount limits will be provided by the instructor. Please see the supply list below for details on clay and glaze kit pickup information.

*Virtual Course Policy: Students registered for virtual courses are expected to conduct themselves as if participating in an on-site Bemis course. As a virtual course registrant, Bemis asks that you please be aware of your surroundings during virtual class sessions. Ensure your Zoom camera background is simple and clear of any foot traffic, including family members moving in and out of view, bright backlighting, or anything else that would be distracting to fellow students and the instructor. If need be, you can choose to turn off your camera in Zoom and turn it back on when you’re ready.
