Every garden needs a clay garden totem to decorate and watch over the beautiful flowers and plants. In this class, you will design and create a themed totem using clay building techniques: coiling, slabs, pinched pots and wheel throwing (with experience). The totem will consist of 4-5 elements that will be glazed and stacked on a metal rod for your garden. Themes might be geometric forms, birds, animals, or flowers to name a few.  Ask about accessibility options!  Class fee includes clay, glaze, firing, and use of tools.
