Our workshops provide unique educational opportunities in specific métiers, taught by local artists. Usually, workshops meet once a week during each ten week session, and most are free or low-cost. In our programs, we use new approaches with existing mediums to create original work.

This workshop is an introduction to various techniques of working with unfired clay. Students will learn to combine clay with other materials and substances, including: paper, wire, nylon fibers, fabric and glue. We will be creating permanent sculptures without firing them in the kiln. The goal of this class is a free and spontaneous expression through clay.
