All students must purchase clay for the class.  If you will be taking multiple classes in the Pottery Studio, a 25 lb. bag of clay is an additional cost of $25, otherwise clay can be purchased in the studio for $1 per lb.
*Please Note: Ceramics is a multi-stage process. What you make in class will need to first dry, then be fired twice. This process can take around two weeks to produce a finished piece.
In this adults only class we will discuss and experiment with hand building techniques. No prior experience in ceramics is necessary; this class can be taken as a beginner class or as a supplementary to your already existing knowledge. Each class can be taken on its own or taken as a series.
