You're limited only by your imagination!

This can be a one night or two night class.$25 | Includes ornament instruction, a pound of clay, and colorful glazes & firing. Or maybe you are enjoying the process and want to slow it all down or even buy more clay and keep on creating...you are welcome to come back the following week and glaze your work.
