AN EVENING WITH MELISSA WEISS: CUP CARVING CLASS TO BENEFIT RAICES
In this class we will employ the "kurinuki" method to carve a cup out of a solid ball of clay. Materials will be provided. No prior clay experience necessary. Students will complete a cup from start to finish and pick it up at a later date glazed and fired. Your cup will be a one of a kind, fully functional piece.
All skill levels. Seats are limited.
Tuesday, September 3, 6-8:30pm
