Join us as we welcome Cory McCrory for this two-day, hands-on workshop and learn the ins and outs of working with paper clay: wet-to-wet, wet-to-dry, dry-to-dry, and thick and thin. Participants will also learn to make their own paper clay, proper storage, how to make repairs before and after bisque, and tools and tricks for firing. Cory will also share how she makes texture sheets, approaches the construction of her pieces, and her decorating and glazing process.


Skill Level: Participants must be able to hand build or work on the wheel with minimal instruction.

Registration includes one 25 lb. bag of clay per participant. Please bring a sketch book, clay tools and lunch.
