Join this pottery making workshop at Rat City Studios.

Jen and Deb are fast friends and have seen each other grow as artists through undergrad in Alaska and their residencies across the states.  Come watch their demonstration workshop as they share their experiences, clay working techniques, and tell stories.  They are going to alter cylinders and transform them into pitchers. 
One-two other forms will be explored as well! They will both use templates to cut and dart, talk about form composition,  discuss surface treatments and more!
