CERAMICS HANDBUILDING - SLAB BUILDING
In this workshop we will focus on using slab, made by rolling clay to a flat sheet, to build ceramic forms according to your ideas. We can build anything from plates to vases. This technique gives you freedom to explore the possibility of forming clay into daily objects you can use and has the benefit of producing professional looking pieces even as an absolute ceramic beginner.
After the work has been glazed and fired, we will inform you when it’s ready for pick up.
