Weekly Women's Class

For those who have some experience with clay 

(meaning you are able to work somewhat independently)

If you want to explore working and creating in clay regularly, this weekly 3-hour class is a good place to start.

 

This is the kind of class that I joined nearly 10 years ago when I first made aliyah, and I found it to be a deeply nourishing and mindful anchor to my week that brought me joy and serenity.  Depending on your mood, you can work quietly by yourself, or enjoy the company and collaboration of your claymates. The studio has multiple work tables, to allow for both work styles.
