Level 1 to 4
Instructor: Monika Schaefer

Class Start April 6
Non-members $260.00 members $245.00

Working with clay can be a wonderful vehicle for quieting the mind. Before potters had the wheel, they were creating beautiful pots and clay forms using “mud”, their hands and basic tools. You will learn surface techniques of underglazes and slips as you pinch, roll, coil, or flatten clay to make functional or sculptural pieces. Explore new forms and surfaces to add richness and diversity to your work. Lots of guidance from Monika will inspire creativity.
