dress code / mess code

wear nothin’ fancy! we’ll get a little bit dirty in this class. longer nails + clay don’t mix, so clip ‘em if you can.

we operate outside in a covered area, and nature is all around us. please expect: flora, fauna, and general #florida phenomena. long pants and closed toed shoes are highly recommended. 

does this include glazing?

this class includes clay, instruction, and your choice of a clear or white glaze. specialty glazing class can be scheduled separately (small fee applies)
