Handbuilding - Experiential Pottery
Location: 3Arts Studio @ 394 Joo Chiat Place Singapore 428078
The workshop begins with a handbuilding demonstration. Please be punctual as the steps are crucial for learning and you will not want to miss this! Classes will start promptly.
The 2.5-hour class is suitable for all ages (individuals 9 years & above) with little or no pottery experience. Individuals with special needs should be accompanied by 1 caregiver; Or at the teachers' discretion, we will do the 'My Cup' workshop for young children who are not able to make the fundamental cylinder vessel.
Did you know that handbuilding is one of the oldest pottery methods? With this technique, there are infinite possibilities in creating your pieces! Join us for a handbuilding experience and see for yourself what you can do with your hands.
Notice how clay can be shaped by your hands and be moulded into wares of all sorts of shapes and sizes! The session focuses on pinching, coiling and slab rolling methods to make your unique creations.
Fees include materials, tools, firing and glazing in one colour by the senior potters. Your handmade piece will be available for collection after 8 weeks, as they require glazing with colour and 2 rounds of firing.
If you wish to glaze your own wares, the 2-Lessons option is for you! You may return to the studio to glaze your work and choose your own colors, after the pieces have been fired once in the kiln. Lesson 2 (Glazing) is about 1.5 hours.
We will arrange with you the date and time of your 2nd lesson after Lesson 1.
Glazing class, Additional $35/pax
We really enjoyed our pottery session. Staff was extremely helpful and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Great weekend activity, especially for couples who want to potter something for each other.
