I love this pinch pottery class because it is easily adapted to use with any type of clay. Here I will be using stoneware clay, but you can use air dry or oven bake clay. In this class I will show you how to make 2 different versions of snow people with hats and scarfs and a little snow pet. This class is suited for all ages and skill levels.
