June 17-19, 2022
 

Join Chicago artist Laura Williams to create charming cups, bowls, plates, lidded jars, spoons, vases and teapots using the handbuilding methods of pinching and coiling. This course is ideal for those with a bit of handbuilding experience, but it’s an option for newcomers to practice simpler forms. Using commercial underglazes and slips, we will decorate the outside of our functional wares. Favorite wares will be clear glazed, fired and, if needed, shipped. If local, you can arrange for pick up at the studio. $5 per piece for both firings (bisque and glaze) paid directly to Globe Clay Center. Shipping is an additional fee.
