What you'll do

This 3 hour group class focuses on the three following hand-building techniques: pinch pots, coiling, slab construction, surface decoration and underglazing. We will start by building pieces using various kinds of clay, and finish by adding beautiful colours to your pieces. Your work will stay with us for a few weeks in order to be fired and glazed, and we can mail you the finished product at an additional cost. Get ready to get your hands dirty and create a one of a kind ceramic work of art.

Where you'll be

Our hand building class will take place in a unique light filled neighbourhood studio. It's across the street from the Museum of Contemporary Art, an independent book store, a restaurant and a local brewery in a building housing many other art studios and small businesses. It's not easy to find without planning ahead, but once you find us, you'll be happy you looked!

More tips

You don't need anything except yourself for this experience. We will provide all materials. If you'd like to get a bite before or after there are several cafes and a restaurant nearby. There are approximately 30 stairs to climb leading up to the studio which you'll find by entering DOOR B.
