Participants will create a clay vessel from self-hardening clay using the coil method of construction as the Adena Culture did 3,000 years ago. There will be an educational background with visual examples. Each participant will be assisted as needed to finish a coil clay vessel. The surfaces will be smoothed out by shell and stone. All individuals will have their own materials to work with. The class will be held outdoors, weather permitting, so dress appropriately. We will be following state guidelines by practicing social distancing.
