    Remember Play Doh when you were a kid? What if we told you you're never too old to play with clay? Sign up for our 5-session Zoom clay class, where we will make and decorate mugs, phone holders, sculptures—whatever you want, really!—using our hands and objects you can find at home. No experience necessary!

    We'll teach you everything you need to know, PLUS we'll mail you all the stuff you'll need! You'll get to keep your final product and, as an added bonus, we'll chat about how working with clay can help you relax and knead-out some of the stress you may be feeling.
