Pottery for Beginners- Hand building  

Thank you so much for taking an interest in our Pottery for Beginners course, please keep in mind that our class is kept intimate and fills up fast so be quick to enroll.



This 6 weeks course Tali Cohen Flantz from KERAMIKA will allow you to learn fundamental techniques in hand building and introduction to wheelwork. Both of these creative processes are beautiful and quite different in nature. In this course, you will be able to have a “taste” of both worlds and finish your own handmade pieces. 

For those of you who are continually learning it’s a great opportunity to try something new or continue on your own path of interest, there is so much to explore and try. 

In this course, you will get the opportunity to learn and experience: 

  • Introduction of clay types and preparation for wheel throwing and hand building
  • Basic skill of throwing on the wheel: centering, pulling up, opening the form
