Small description of event:
Participants will be led through a hands-on studio experience in the Ceramics studio. Each participant will build a mug using clay parts created through an extruder tool. With slabs for a base, walls of the cup, and handle, a cup will be built. George Barreca, a third year graduate student in ceramics will lead this workshop through demonstration, hands-on assistance and jovial conversation. After the workshop concludes, George will fire the work in order for your mug to be a used in your daily life. After the firing, the School of Art will work with the Alumni Relations staff to have the mug returned to each participant.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
