Design, create and embellish little pierced and hanging pots out of clay that will wrap your orchids and air plants in wonderful textures and colors. Using a variety of handbuilding techniques, we’ll form these little gems on day one, and add color with glazes on day two. They can hang or sit on a shelf and they’ll be sure to brighten up your home or become lovely gifts. All materials are provided, and if you have clay tools or stamps you prefer, please bring them along. Completed pots will be available for pick up at the Garden ten days after the second class.
