Design and create a one-of-a-kind keepsake turtle. Students will use stoneware clay to hand-build a turtle by forming shapes from soft clay in different patterns and learn how to make limbs and head to complete their turtle. We will use a variety of basic clay techniques that are the foundation for all clay work.

Students will select a glaze color or two and the instructor will dry and fire each turtle and return the finished pieces for pick up at the gallery.

Adults and participants ages 13+ are welcome. Please wear clothes appropriate for art projects or bring a smock.

This workshop is being held in conjunction with the Visible Touch: A Look at Texture art exhibit.
