Found the class to be invaluable, in terms of setting up the art room for ceramic for the first time. Lots of info and tips for working with students , how store their work, equipment , clay preparation, under glazes and managing project. Enjoy the hands on and practical hand building aspect to the class. Looking forward to learning more at the next workshop in April. 5 stars
I had a great day learning and reviewing my skills in hand-building techniques. The workshop was extremely helpful as it had been many years since working with clay. The teacher has a lot of knowledge and excellent ideas for my lessons. Five STAR !!!
