Adult and Kids Hand-building Pottery

Score, slip, and press! Those are the first steps to working in clay. Participants will learn how to make slip properly and to use hand-building techniques such as making coils and slabs.  These techniques are the foundation to making clay pots.  Be inspired to create the most unique pot that is possible!  Clay and glaze will be supplied.
