Note: These can be purchased before your session begins or at your first class but do not include items such as a slip/scoring tool, a small knife such as a scalpel or paring knife and will be helpful to bring.  Since this class uses both clay as well as additional items to create assemblage work, you will need to resource much of what you want to incorporate into your pieces.  In the class we will discuss what items/ideas such as “found objects” that you will want to bring on a week by week basis to complete your projects.  In some cases, the instructor may have items for inclusion in your pieces and advise you if there is a small charge to purchase them.  We will discuss where and how you can find nearby shops, etc. to mine items for mixed media/assemblage wor
