Program

 

Description

Through a set of techniques that lay the foundation for working with clay we will work with geometric shapes as a theme.

An introduction to the history of this material will bring us in touch with the long tradition of ceramics and inspire us to explore the proposed theme.

Apparently simple forms will challenge us to find the best way to build them.
