We are delighted that Ceramic Artist Fiona Scanlan, is teaching at Sundragon again in the year. Join her class, and get to explore and play with clay. You will learn many of the techniques associated with creating objects from clay. This is also a great introduction to studio life at Sundragon, and a beginning point if you are thinking of becoming a member.
