Eastman – Mondays, Apr 5 – 26, 5-8 pm (In-person)
Whether you are new to clay or want to experiment with shifting scale and function, this class is a great chance to explore hand-building and surface design. We will cover small slab construction, bead-making, carving, sgraffito, mishima, and glaze alternatives. After our work is fired, we will experiment with combining our clay creations with cord, wire, and other materials to create finished jewelry pieces.
