Frequently Asked Questions
What if I’ve never worked with clay before?
This course is perfect for you! This course is intended for total beginners or anyone interested in getting to know how to hand build with clay.
What if I’m not very artistic?
We’ll walk you through the beauty of clay, step by step. Learning how to work with tools and developing your handwork can help enhance your creativity! If you are artistic, there are plenty of opportunities to get creative, but anyone can take this course and end up with the basics of handling clay.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course -you decide when you start and when you finish.
Will I need to fire my pieces in a kiln?
We recommend that you do, for the most durability. A local pottery studio with a kiln can help you in this regard. If you’d prefer not to use a kiln, you can explore using these techniques with self-hardening clay.
Can I use a microwave or an oven to fire my pieces instead of a kiln?
Neither a microwave nor a kitchen indoor oven are recommended. Since an oven cannot reach the temperatures hot enough to fire pots, trying to do so may cause a house fire.
Can I really take this entire course in one afternoon?
You can! BUT, we do recommend buying your supplies and materials ahead of time, and following along to practice the hand movements and tool use on your clay if you can.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
