What you'll learn in this handbuilding class:

Beginner classes introduce fundamental handbuilding techniques, including pinch, coil and slab construction and wheel throwing to make bowls, vases, cups, plates and other vessel forms.


Q: Are aprons provided? 
A: No, 92Y does not supply aprons. Customers are allowed to bring a change of clothes and can change in our changing room if they prefer not to buy an apron.

Q: Can I make up a class if I miss one? 
A: No, make-up classes are not allowed since other classes may be full. Further, instructors are paid based on the number of students within their own classes, so attending a class outside your own is not allowed.

Q: Are the Materials included in the class price?
 No. But you have the option to purchase the tools for $25 and the Apron for $16. Here is an image of the tools needed, as well as the recommended suppliers.

Handbuilding and Wheel (Beginner)
Reviewed by Cat W. on 8/18/2016
The class was awful. The instruction amounted to a couple of demonstrations on the wheel and one class on pinch pots with a bit of hand building ideas if you wanted them. It was mostly a free for all; folks clamboring for materials and personal attention and a lot of people who were not in the class vying for materials and space as well. The studio is a mess; no one knows where anything is. Sadly, the instructors meant well but were just not good at instructing.
