CERAMICS PLANTER WORKSHOP
In this workshop you will learn how to make a planter pot from clay, using several hand building techniques. You will learn about the characteristics of different clays and how to apply them to your ideas. Then you’ll get your hands dirty and get to work making you planter. To take full advantage of the workshop, do bring your ideas, references or photos and we will be inspired from there!
