Tell a story in clay
Each of these talented artists tells us a personal story in clay. Each presenter treats the surface in a unique manner, and will share their surface techniques with YOU over the two-day conference. Explore the possibilities with surfaces by combining new techniques to what you already know. Come and find out how to tell your narrative in clay.
