Circle Slab Vase
In this class you will learn how to make vases or planters using stiff slabs. I will show you how to make a vase that can stand on its own or be hung on a wall. I will also show you ways you can change the shape and turn it into a planter. These vases make fabulous gifts and are a great item to sell at craft/art fairs. This class is suitable for all ages and skill levels.
