Learn the donut, versatility of a closed form, 2,3,4 or 5 piece forms. This workshop includes a problem solving session. Helpful and favorite tools are demonstrated to give your pieces a more professional look and finish. This can be a one or two day workshop, depending on the number of attendees. A two day workshop is preferred if a hands-on workshop is selected.
