We’ll use pinch and slab methods to create charming boxes for your tiny (or not-so-tiny) treasures. Learn to create interesting textures, lids, handles, and slip-painted designs and slumped-glass crackles to make your vessels unique. Students will experiment with basic to intermediate hand- building techniques: beginners through advanced ceramic aficionados are welcome.
