Handbuilding - Slabs

Instructor: Scott Jennings

Thursdays 10am - 1pm

Beginners and advanced students are welcome in this class that will explore a variety of forming and finishing techniques throughout the session. The class will focus on hand building techniques, including but not limited to, the basics of working with clay, using soft slabs to make cups and bowls, coil and pinch vessels, rigid slab construction, using slip in the decorative process, and finally glaze application. While particular attention will be paid to functional and vessel forms, students who wish to work on sculptural forms are welcome. Special attention will be paid to students’ individual pursuits.


Priority registration is given to the current students in a class. Their deadline to re-enroll is class #5 of each 8-class session. 

The number of students opting out of re-enrollment will open up that many spots, initially, to people on each class's notification list. A given notification list is solely tied to a specific class session (e.g,, May 2 - July 2). There’s no roll-over of the notification list to the following session. 

Should we be unable to fill this class via the notification list, we’ll add a registration link to this page, first-come/first-serve.


The next Thu. morning session begins Nov. 21. Please add your name to the notification list below if you’re interested.

THU. MORNING CLASS NOTIFICATION LIST (For 8-week session starting Nov. 21)
