The focus of the course will be on building technical skills and exploring the design options of different ways of working with clay.
Classes are adjusted to your learning needs. Beginners learn basic throwing and hand-building techniques while intermediates, can focus on improving the techniques learned in a beginner class and learn new techniques.
