Clay Gingerbread House with Kathy Richmond

Clay, architecture, colorful glazes and a skilled instructor – these are the perfect elements required for an interesting class. Join art instructor Kathy Richmond in creating miniature clay gingerbread houses filled with interesting textures and architectural details. Houses are constructed from rolled slabs of clay and then the fun begins – shingles, shutters, arched doorways, textured chimneys. The combinations are endless. All skill levels are welcome.
