This class will cover the techniques of forming, shaping and decorating vases, cups and bowls. As students refine these skills, they will work on more complex projects that will enable them to combine techniques and push their own creativity and problem solving abilities. Glazing and other surface treatments will be explored. Class size will remain at reduced capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory
