Weekend Handbuilding

Handbuilding 01 (September Weekend)


Hand building is one of the oldest techniques of ceramic art. This particularly versatile method helps one to get a thorough understanding of how clay molds into different forms and shapes.

This beginner ceramic hand building course is designed for you to build a good foundation fundamental in techniques like Pinching, Coiling & Slab work.

This is a 11 session course, spread over 4 weeks, of 3 hours per session out of which 8 sessions are instructor led and remaining 3 open studio sessions are practice sessions. We can accommodate only 8 students per ceramic hand building batch.  Hence the registration will be on a first come first serve basis.

Instructor Brief:

Chandana’s creativity is fueled by a variety of interests. She loves experimenting with different subjects and materials with varying outcomes of failure and success.

These varied interests culminate in a small mixed media studio, Studio Cha that is her space for experimenting with varied materials from gouache, wall paints to paper maché, clay, etc.

She holds BVA & MVA from College of Fine Arts, Bengaluru; where she majored in Sculpture, and Art History.

Furthermore, she went on to do a Diploma in Counselling Skills to explore nature of human beings in the cultural and emotional aspects of life. She volunteers at different organizations across the city from time to time.

She is a part of a Bengaluru based Art collective, Geechugalu that explores her roots through art.

Her journey in Ceramics began with Claystation Sadhashivnagar, where she learnt pottery and has worked on the production side in the development of glazes.

She has been a freelance art instructor for more than a decade. Her process of creating works through guiding the student through an understanding of material and body. This helps build a relationship through which one can communicate a language of art, that is both personal and universal.
