Already have experience with clay? This student driven class provides personal studio time, without an instructor to practice pottery skills. Use the wheel or work using slab techniques on your own time. All materials will be included. All completed pieces will be fired on site. Please note: The FAI is trying to minimize the number of students in our building at this time for safety and health reasons. All studio time ceramic students are asked to please use the ceramics room during the designated time of their class.
