Rosemary Danaher is an experienced potter and teacher. She is teaching
hand building using the soft slab method. Students will learn how to handle clay,
roll it out, imprint it or scribe a decorative pattern, and build it onto a form for
drying, how to 'clean up' your shape after the first firing, and how to glaze, then
finish the final piece after glazing. The projects include a plant holder and/or a
plaque for the wall, with other smaller objects using up small scraps of clay.
