Bring a new level of craft to your kitchen by making your own clay crock pot, a time-honored cooking vessel used for making sauerkraut, pickles and other fermentation recipes. Over the course of 2 Saturday mornings, we will use the slab and coil methods to make our own crock pots. We will be carving, pressing, piercing and stamping the clay with local found materials.  No experience is necessary, just the desire to get your hands in clay and create.  (See also The Art of Fermentation - An Evening with Sandor Katz, July 21, and Two-Day Fermentation Intensive Workshop with Sandor Katz, July 22 & 23.
