30 year licensed arts educator and potter: creating community thru clay and culture

Parent & Children's classes begin this and every Sunday,
11:00am-12:30pm; younger children may work till 11:45, with story!
(feel free to bring snack)

We'll spend the first class introducing the ancient clay traditions of the SW; what is clay and what are potshards? then, working with micaceous clay, making either a simple pinch pot or for the youngest, as needed, a plaque or tile. (Some are much more oriented towards flat work at this age.) In this good spring weather, we can find textures outside to press into the clay; and parents can create a small vessel, for later outdoor firing, burnished and black, as in photo on top right.

Each Parent-child pair: $15/parent and $10 for each child;
Includes mat'ls, firing, and how to set up a clay station in your own home!

$100 for the 4 weeks
