The piece will be approximately 6"x12" and will be sustainable for outdoor hanging. You can create this piece with the name of your loved one or the address numbers of your home. It's a fun project and also makes a great gift!

If you are interested in clay, but aren’t sure the wheel is for you, consider hand-building and begin creating wonderful functional pieces of artwork on your very first day. This class will give you the opportunity to create unique projects each week. Students will focus on the vocabulary of clay, slab construction, pinch pots, surface texture, clay impression and more. For students who are looking for a place to express their creativity, hand-building may be the experience for you.
