Hand build ceramic Christmas ornaments/decoration focusing on textures found in nature. Dependent on weather, at the start of each class participants take a leisurely walk through nature to collect inspiration and talk about textures and images observed for the clay project. No experience required. We will be learning slab and coil techniques as well as various decorating techniques including carving and etching. Participants will learn the properties of clay and focus on making different impressions and patterns in their pieces. In this workshop we will be creating Christmas ornaments/decor for the holiday season! Come design and make special decorations for your home, tree, and friends. Each ornament and piece will vary in size. People will be able to make a handful of ceramic pieces. We will be using slab technique in order to cut shapes from clay. Pre-registration required.
