Beginning Pottery—pinch pots can be made into anything! with Joann Vriend

Ceramics

Students begin by making a pinch pot, then changing it into a fish or frog by adding parts. They then use their own imagination to explore what else could be made out of a simple pinch pot. This workshop works well in the elementary, but could be used at any grade. This workshop takes one hour initially and then another hour for glazing, a week or two later.
