Making your own pottery tools and equipment – for clay artists as well as teachers
Any clay artist can make tools from household and found objects, and build studio equipment and shelving from salvaged materials.

Your objective is to be resourceful, find and/or make as many as possible. We will all be richer for the experience and you’ll have an assortment of tools to keep.
One of the difficulties teachers face is having enough basic tools for 30 students to use at the same time.
Workshop basic price in Tucson, $75. Pima County $95.
