CLAY SCULPTING: UNDER THE SEA TILES
Clay has been used for thousands of years to create pottery as well as decorative tiles and mosaics. But we aren’t making your average tile.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the basics of making a pinch pot – one of the oldest methods of clay sculpting. Then, you’ll transform it from humble pot into any creature you can imagine. Will you sculpt a barnyard rooster or a mythic dragon? It’s up to you!
