(Adults, Hand-building, Beginner)

Begin your pottery journey using simple tools and your own two hands.

If you’ve ever wanted to try working with clay, hand-building is the ideal place to start! Learn the basics of making pottery – from wedging your first lump of clay to dipping the final piece in glaze. Pinch pots, coil building, and slab building techniques will be introduced and integrated to create pieces that can be used in the home or given as gifts.

• All materials and tools will be supplied.

Marilyn McDonald
Marilyn McDonald began her pottery journey at the University of Calgary in the late 60’s. Mostly self-taught she developed her education by attending workshops, seminars and courses by influential potters like Steven hill, Mary Fox, Vincent Massey, Judy Weeden, and many more. Her work is mostly functional stoneware, thrown and altered and reflecting fluidity and motion in the form and the flow of colours used in the glaze.
