Advanced Handbuilding with Lee Akins
This workshop will cover a variety of hand building approaches. The student will learn how to work from a maquette, ways to speed up coiling, and texturing as part of the building process. Both soft slab and stiff slabs techniques will be explored including the use of molds and tarpaper forms.
This is a chance to move beyond basic techniques.
