Message from Lee Steadman, Director of BLOOM: 

All Bloom classes are closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We miss our creative community gathering here and still believe strongly in the positive effects that art has on our health. Draw, paint or create however you can on your own till this passes. It will help you stay calm and focused on the positive.  We cannot wait to see what beautiful creations you’ve made on your own time!

Stay Creative at Home!

Hand Building

Discover the Art of Handbuilding

Handbuilding is an ancient pottery-making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools. The most common handbuilding techniques that BLOOM uses in our techniques are pinch pottery, coil building, and slab building.

Our fees include clay, glazes and firing.
