This workshop is for the advanced beginner and beyond. Participants should bring their own pasta machine and know how to condition clay with a pasta machine, as well as use basic tools, like cutting blades, rollers etc. This workshop has been praised by clayers of all levels of expertise as Mona generously shares her tips and tricks to refine your artwork.
