Clay Classes and Workshops
Hand-building Basic Forms and Techniques
Have you ever wanted to get your hands into clay? In this class you will learn how to form clay into spheres, cylinders, and flat slabs. From these forms, you’ll be guided to create functional pieces such as bowls, vases, and platters. Because you will also learn the proper techniques of attaching one piece of clay to another, you can let your imagination run wild to build sculpture using your new-found knowledge.

Special Clay Workshops
There have been books written about singular techniques such as "Finding One's Way with Clay" by the late Paulus Berensohn on making pinch pots. Periodically, we will offer a workshop devoted to one technique and spend our time exploring it in depth.
Look for workshops on making ocarinas, box making and tiles.
Check the calendar for dates, times and costs.
