Ceramic Hand Building Workshops 

Ceramic Trinket Box Workshop:  

In this one session clay workshop, students will learn how to hand sculpt trinket boxes out of water based clay, using traditional slab building techniques.

Each student will build and complete one trinket box each. Once completed, students have the option for the studio to glaze your piece one color, or you may return to hand paint/glaze during open studio hours for no additional cost. All materials/clay/firings/glazes are included in the class price.
