This class focuses strictly on handbuilding which is the basic and essential method to understand clay. 

You will be instructed by our professional ceramic artists and learn many of the handbuilding skills that are needed to make all kinds of functional and sculptural works of art.

Question from Anonymous
Hi, I would like to make a planter window box which is 22 inches in length. Would I have enough materials in the class to do so?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The instructor said it would be something that would be hard to accommodate. It is large and does take more expertise. The class is a general class for beginners with basic skills. Hope this helps!

Question from Anonymous
Hi - is there flexibility with this class on what you create? For example, if I want to sculpt a mug instead of making a coil pot, is that possible?
Answer from Sana l. Verified Student
Yes no problem at all
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Yes, you can make a mug. The school tries not to have too many different projects because it's hard to teach too many different methods at a time but that should not be an issue it's one of the projects.

Class was ok. It was less of a class- in terms of not much teaching, but rather just free time to make something out of clay. The teacher did help us aa bit.
