    Students will learn the very basics of working with clay. We will learn how to hand build small projects using pinch pots, slabs, and coils. Students will learn the importance of what it means to 'slip and score' to keep their projects from falling apart! This class is more about the process than the product, but students will still have a fun time, learn a lot about clay and make some cool stuff! And we will get dirty! So, please wear old clothes!
