The class will take place in Shanagarry Design Center, Shanagarry, Cork, P25 HX82.

This workshop is a great introduction to working with clay using handbuilding techniques. Your teacher is a qualified Ceramic Designer and is a member with the Teaching Council of Ireland. You will be amazed at the skills you will learn, and what you can make during this half-day class. But most of all it is an opportunity to meet new friends, have a laugh and take a step back from our crazy busy lives and get creative!


What is Handbuilding

Handbuilding is a ceramics technique that allows you to create forms with clay and your hands, without using a throwing wheel. Before ceramicists invented the wheel, handbuilding was the only way they could create functional and artistic ceramic forms. The oldest known ceramic artifact was handbuilt and is dated as early as 28,000 BCE. All you need to get started are your clay, your hands, and a few simple tools.


Handbuilding methods and techniques

While handbuilding is as simple as using your hands to form an object out of clay, it encompasses three main techniques and forming methods. Once you have mastered pinching, coiling, and slab building, you can make just about anything out of clay.

Each class is limited to 10 people so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment
