  • Hand building with clay is an extremely gratifying art form.  In this class, we'll make garden stakes either large for outdoor or small for indoor herb gardens.  We'll roll, measure and cut, stamp and impress, add a simple glaze and If there is time, maybe make some other things.  There are infinite possibilities with stoneware.  You will learn basic slab rolling techniques, scoring and slipping, embossing and slumping.  We will provide all the materials and tools necessary, all you'll need is your imagination.  Come prepared to get a little dirty, so wear your favorite "grubbies".  I'll glaze and fire them for you and you'll have them within 2 weeks !  You will be thrilled with your efforts and results.
