A: Clay Pinchpot Trinket Dishes with Merenda Cecelia (Adults and Youth 6+ with Registered Adult)

Spend an evening in the clay studio with ceramicist Merenda Cecelia, and create beautiful small dishes and vessels for special trinkets! This class will go over the basic techniques of pinch pots to build an imaginatively shaped vessel to hold tiny trinkets. Adults and youth can work together to design objects of varying complexity. You will use airdry clay so you can take them home immediately! Airdry clay can be painted with acrylic paint if you'd like to add some color in the future.
