Come and join the fun! This 4 hour workshop uses horizontally layered colored clay to make shared creations. In groups of 4 each person starts a pot and then passes it to the left, then adds to the pot they received and passes it again until all 4 people have contributed to 4 pots. This go-round process serves to loosen up set ways of working and offers the opportunity to work with and see how others work in a light and relaxed atmosphere. It explores some of the range of horizontally layered colored clay. Each student will end the workshop with a selection of cooperatively made pots!
