Come experience the grounding nature of combining handbuilding clay and botanicals. After learning the basics of hand building, you will create plant pressings into clay and mold and shape your piece into a functional object. The piece you create will be glazed and fired at no additional cost. Students can expect to pick up their pieces from Waterfront Botanical Gardens in the following weeks.
