Do you want to start or grow in your hand-building skills with clay? Now’s your perfect chance with personal, small classes that focus on where you’re at and take you to the next level!

Beginners start with basic skills and build to acquire new skills each week. We will work with coiling, slabs, pinch, and decoration techniques for 4-5 projects.
