In this beginner hand-building class, students will learn a wide range of hand-building techniques which can be used to make functional pottery without a wheel. This class will cover pinching, slab and coil building and will show you how to combine these techniques to make fun and creative objects.

Students will also learn basic glazing and finishing techniques and will leave the course with several pieces of functional pottery. The Centre provides all tools, equipment, glazes and firings. Students purchase clay from the Centre.

Trevor Novak grew up in Toronto, Ontario and studied ceramics at Sheridan College before coming to NS to complete his studies at NSCAD University. While his work often centres around sculptural forms, you need not worry because Trevor is also accomplished at throwing and hand-building functional pottery. He is currently an artist in residence at the CB Centre for Craft & Design.
