What you'll learn in this handbuilding class:

In hand building, potters design and create with pliable clay. It is how people first began making ceramics and it is an easy and satisfying way to make plates, bowls, trays, sculpture and much more. 

On the other hand, wheel throwing is more like mild physical exertion similar to learning to swim or ride a bike. Although it appears relaxing and easy, it does require patience and practice in order to master. 

Note:
Please inform us whether you are enrolling for Hand Building or for Wheel Throwing. 
Minimum age requirement: 12 years old.

Attended: Private Hand Building or Wheel Throwing
The studio itself was great, my only issue was not being able to go in & make something that I wanted to make. I felt that the instructor Didnt care to hear my requests on what I was hoping to create. Instead it was way less hands on & kind of a bummer. I’m hoping to find a studio that allows more of a creative, hands on experience in the future.

I really enjoyed the class. Grace was very hands-on with us and informative. She also accommodated my groups poor scheduling and rescheduling choices. You can learn a lot in an hour. Hopefully, your memory works a little better than mine though!
