Join local ceramic artist, Mercia Hobson, for a night of dirty fun as she guides you in the fine art of weaving strips of pre-dyed extruded clay over a hump mold. At the end of the 2-hour class, you will have made an artisan clay baskets, just right for your farmers market find or your baked goods.
** Note your clay basket will take about 2 1/2 weeks to dry prior to its 2-day kiln firing. Plan on picking up your artwork about 3 weeks after class night. It’ll be worth the wait.
