This class is beginner-friendly and includes all the tools you need, clay, glaze, and firing of two or three finished pieces.

Ally Bruser is an elementary school art teacher, artist, and mother living in southwest Washington, on the unceded territory of the Chinook Nation. Most of her ceramics are handbuilt using Nerikomi techniques — the process of pressing and folding multiple colors of clay together and then rolling them into slabs. When not making pottery, Ally is working towards making the arts and arts learning experiences more accessible as the Program Manager for Sou’wester Arts.
