Introduction to Handbuilding with Clay

June 7, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - June 28, 2021 @ 9:00 pm


Eastman – Mondays, Jun 7-28, 6-9 pm (In-person)

Want to expand your ceramics practice to include handbuilding? Never worked with clay before but intrigued about making boxes or tiles? This course will cover the basics of working with clay slabs to construct functional wares and sculptural objects. Students will learn to use templates to design their creations, work with soft and leather-hard slabs, and glazing techniques.

About the Instructor:

Angela Eastman is an artist and designer residing in Hillsborough, North Carolina. She holds an MFA in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art and completed the Core Fellowship program at Penland School of Crafts. Her sculptural works explore the relationships between adaptability, consumption, and a sense of home. Angela teaches workshops to adults and youth in a wide variety of media, including basketweaving, ceramics, textiles, paper crafts, and metalworking.

Tuition includes the cost of a bag of clay, glaze materials, and firing fees. Students should come to the back of The ArtsCenter building to access the ceramics studio entrance and patio. Please contact the instructor for information on tool kits to purchase prior to class at
