Both avenues will also include the firing & glazing process. Your clay class registration allows you to come for all Open Studio sessions to practice or work on your current projects. Class sizes are limited. Register in the BMCA office (Main Building).
The 6-week sessions are $135 (for tuition & Open Studio) + lab fee of $50 (for clay, glazes, firing).
