2011 Summer Program

Clay is one of civilization's most universal resources. Every culture has found methods of shaping and transforming its clay for practical and artistic purposes. Construct tools to flatten, press, roll, pinch and mark clay; produce projects for use and for art; experiment with textures, printing, and embossing on surfaces; glaze and fire tiles in styles from around the world; all in the micropottery scale that allows quick drying and decorating. Build a portable carrier and work surface to continue your work at home.
