There will be a third session on Aug. 11 and Aug.18. Please see http://randybill.wordpress.com/ or Charlottesville’s City Clay facebook page for more details. The first day of a session is for glazing or burnishing (prerequisite for horsehair) and the second day is for firing. Students will need to have bisqued pots to participate.
