In this teen clay camp imagine and engineer sculptural machines using hand-building techniques such as coil and slab building. These whimsical contraptions, reminiscent of Rube Goldberg designs, can serve various purposes: they can perform tasks, enhance decor, or contribute to personal rituals. For example, you might create a clay machine that clears negative thoughts or perhaps a decorative piece that doubles as a candle holder. In this class, the possibilities are endless as we make our clay sculptures interactive!
