Introduction to Ceramic Hand Building

This four-week workshop will introduce participants to the basics of hand built ceramics, from sculpting all the way to glazing. Weeks 1-2 will focus on building both functional and decorative pieces using basic hand building techniques, week 3 will focus on surface decoration including sculpting, under-glazing, and stamping, and week 4 will focus on glazing and next steps for those looking to continue their ceramic journeys. These classes are intended to be taken consecutively and each builds upon the next. Participants will leave with 2-3 finished ceramic pieces and a solid knowledge base of beginner hand building techniques.

About Instructor: Willow Sedam

Bio: I am a self-taught Fort Collins artist working across a wide variety of media. My personal focus is on sculpture – I work in crochet, wood, papier-mâché, and ceramics – but I also do illustration and painting, including 8 murals throughout Fort Collins that I have painted for both the City and the Fort Collins Mural Project. I am pursuing a degree in natural resources with a focus on environmental education which finds its way into many of my public art pieces, and have experience leading educational programming for all ages.
