Make trays, boxes, towers, cylinders, bowls, drinking vessels and more. We’ll also collect, discuss and share objects and techniques that can be used to add unique surface textures to our pieces.

About the Instructor
Al has been been playing and working with mud since he was a kid, his “Play-Doh Fun Factory” was just the best toy Al ever had. Al believes he became an architect and space designer as a result of all those things that he built in my “first childhood." Over the years he have been in and out of the clay studio.
