Ramen bowls and soup spoons, a spring roll dish with 3 dipping sauces, fruit or berry bowls, multi piece set, sushi or charcuterie, whatever you're eating we can get you rolling. Depending on the complexity you can expect to build one, two or three ceramic pots during the workshop. If time allows you can get to coloring too. Do a little food research and bring a few ideas on paper to get a jump on the project.

Paperclay stoneware is perfect for unusual or multi part clay projects. The addition of paper pulp into stoneware acts to help control drying induced cracking and warping. Items can be made lighter and rules can be pushed.
