This 5 week workshop will be an intense voyage into the workings of ceramics. Clay is the most direct material we have for building, so consider an idea in your brain and translate that idea through your hands into this material, leaving a personal mark on the clay itself.

We will be investigating hand building techniques— transforming your theoretical guttural ideas into objects. Assignments and critiques are an integral part of this class.
