Learn to identify local clay, and then process some of this special dirt into a workable material. The pinching and coiling techniques used by the earliest humans are still some of the best ways to shape clay, and they will be demonstrated so that each participant can make a small object by the end of the workshop. In this workshop, you will compare wild clay with commercially available clay, and talk a bit about traditional potter’s practices and pit firing techniques.
