Ceramics Series

July 16 - 30, 2020

This event occurred as part of the 20/21 Classes & Workshops season. This is an archived view.

Join us via Zoom for three hands-on sessions that build ceramic skills at home.

20/21 Classes & Workshops

This series is now sold out.

Instructors: Jenny Swanson and Sarah Heimann

All materials, necessary tools, and instructions will be sent to you via USPS.*

Participants will not be making finished (fired) projects, instead the focus is on the experience and skill-building that will serve you well later when you are in the physical studio.

*We apologize, but due to the time required to order materials, we are not able to ship outside the Continental US in a timely manner.
