Hand-building with Clay Lessons

Your child will learn how to prepare the clay and form different shapes. They will learn to join these shapes using the "slip and score" technique and make one of the five hand-built items pictured.








In the one-visit experience your piece will be painted using engobes (a special liquid clay available in limited colors). Your piece will then be allowed to dry and be fired in the kiln. It will be available to pick-up about one week after your visit to the studio.


In the two-visit experience you will create your piece during your first visit. The piece will then be allowed to dry and be fired in the kiln. Your bisque piece will be available to paint about a week after your first visit. Your second visit will be painting  your bisque piece with a large assortment of glaze colors. Your piece will then return to the kiln and be fired again. It will be available for you to pick-up about one week after your painting visit.
