Workshop Description: Pinching a pot is a magical way to experience clay and manipulate it into a rewarding form! In this workshop we will pinch small begging bowls, cups or pots using only our hands to do so. We well use terra sigillata and under glazes to further enhance the clay surface of our creations. All you need is a willingness to listen to the clay and be spontaneous about where it leads you.

Workshop Specifics:
Sunday 10:00am - 3:00pm | August 21st
Ages 18+ | $100
