#var:page_name# cover

Introduction to Ceramics: Handbuilding is an ongoing workshop that is taught by Dallas Ward. This workshop is held on the 2nd Monday of every month from 6-8pm. The class teaches students basic hand-building skills and familiarizes them with the Ceramics Studio. Pieces made during the workshop can be fired in the kiln at the end of the class.
All materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own clay. Make sure you come prepared to get a little grubby!

Parking info:
Parking is very limited in the WonderRoot lot. Please park on surrounding streets or in the parking lot of our neighbor Homegrown.

Dallas Ward offers beautiful, functional, handmade pottery, and decorative ceramics. Dallas has just graduated with an Associate Degree in Art with Honors and is now a junior at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. He is pursuing a B.F.A in studio art with a concentration in ceramics, and is currently the instructor at WonderRoot in the ceramics studio. Dallas began throwing pottery in January of 2014 and has been inspired by his ability to mold the clay into several shapes. He is constantly exploring new techniques to offer innovative, dynamic pieces.

Artists Helping Artists is an ongoing adult art educational program that takes place at the WonderRoot Community Arts Center. Artists Helping Artists workshops are led by professional artists who give their time, knowledge, and expertise to lead workshops that are economically accessible to all. We offer both introductory and intermediate technique-oriented and discussion-based classes that enable participants to learn new creative skills, hone existing ones and engage with others in a safe, nurturing, and experimental environment.

Artists Helping Artists classes operate on a “Sliding Scale” model that enables participation regardless of economic status. Through this model we offer a variety of price-points and ask that participants pick price-points that correspond to their financial situations. 50% of all proceeds serve as compensation for Artists Helping Artists Instructors. The other 50% goes to support Artists Helping Artists programming.
