May 3 & 10, 2024 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm View in Your Timezone

Pinching is one of the most basic techniques and in this workshop we will use this simple method to explore more complex forms within the realm of functional and sculptural objects. Emily will demonstrate different ways of creating marks within hand-building and show how even within pinching and coil building there is a lot of room for exploration. Additionally, she will show how she uses coil and bisque molds to create the bases of some of her work.



All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
