funky cups
instructed by amy smoot

Get playful with your pottery! Students will utilize hand building techniques like pinching, slabs, and coils to create their pottery but with a twist! Instead of decorating cups with painting flat designs, students will learn how to sculpt three dimensional objects to attach to their wares. These objects can be used as a handle to a mug, a foot on a bowl, or just for pure fun around your clay vessels.


This class is from 1-4 PM on Friday, June 24th and 9 AM-12 PM on Saturday and Sunday.


This class is for participants 18+ and has a minimum of 4 participants and a maximum of 10. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.
