This one-day workshop is perfect for the art teacher looking to add clay to his or her curriculum but without the worry of firing a kiln!  Guest instructor Randy Eakin will guide participants as they create unique, freeform bowls from both air-dry clay and low fire ceramic clay.  Teachers will learn to create the “stamps” that help form the bowls, learn methods of adding texture to the bowls, and learn finishing techniques for both the air dry and ceramic bowls.   All supplies provided. 6 CPE credit hours will be provided to participants.
