This is an 8-week workshop! $400
In this workshop, kids will get their hands dirty learning the basics of handbuilding with clay (pinch, slab, coil). We’ll practice a variety of techniques for working with clay, learn about the process of firing and how the kiln works, and glaze our creations. We'll also look at contemporary and ancient ceramic artists and the way they approached and created functional vessels.
