Handbuilding is a quick-start for making great pottery. Each class focus is a new topic, Make a simple or fancy press-plate (think snacks, soap dish, ring holder) or model mushrooms for the kitchen. Learn the cylinder form and create cups and mugs, a planter, tooth brush holder, or kitchen utensil jar. Hollow forms such as rattles and pumpkins and floats for your Lilly Pond. Bowls from coil and bowls from slabs, using glass or plaster molds. Your imagination will take hold and create never-before wonders!

Similar to the handbuilding class, but more frolicksome and with snacks! A great 'night out' for a couple, a women's group, men's group, birthday party, or treat for out-of-town guests and relatives. Typical students make two items.
