Local potter Bianca Dupuis will conduct a two-part Hand-Building Pottery Workshop.

If you enjoy creating objects with your hands you will love this workshop! Our first session will consist of hand-building clay objects for decorative use (vase, plates, etc.). In our second session we will finish our surface by decorating with colorful under-glazes. Come and enjoy all that clay has to offer! You must attend BOTH classes to complete the project.
