Come play with clay! 


All skill levels are welcomed. Make whatever you'd like! Form pieces using handbuilding techniques (forming clay with your hands; not with a potter's wheel).  If you have never worked/played with clay, let me know when you come in, and I'll show you the basic things you need to know. 


This workshop takes place two afternoons most months. The first day is spent forming your projects and it is left to dry for several days before it is put in a kiln and fired. The second day is spent applying colorful glazes. Your pieces will be fired for a second time in a kiln and then they will be ready to take home. 


It's much easier if you have an idea of what you'd like to make. I will be there to help anyone who wants/needs help. 


We supply the tools you'll need to create your pieces. We have clay tools, underglazes, glazes, brushes, many items to use as textures/stamps (and the kiln to fire them in twice). Since everyone works at different speeds, the clay is sold separately. It's $10 for 8 pounds, which can last from two to four sessions. Or two people are welcome to share a bag. Purchase it today on our website or bring $10 to class (cash or check made out to "Desert Brush"). Your clay will be waiting for you at class.
