Give it a shot! - Handbuilding


Come explore clay in this 2 hour workshop, no experience necessary!

You'll use a slump mold to make a bowl and experiment with pinch pots, coil building and sculpting. You'll decorate your pieces with textures, carving, and underglazes. All materials are included. You’ll make 2-3 pieces and will pick them up 2-3 weeks later ( after they’re dried, fired, and glazed! ). Children 5 and older are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Parents with children should register for 2 spots. Class is limited to 10 participants.

This is a one day, 2 hour class and must have 4 students registered to confirm.
