This beautiful rose will never fade! Students learn to fashion a rose with lovely petals, a bud and some leaves resting on a circular base. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day gift!

*Note: All in school and virtual clay programs use air dry clay which is much less durable than clay that is bisque fired at our visual art studios. We cannot transport clay from in-school programs to the visual art studios for firing, but if your school has a kiln and a technician, we can supply suitable clay for firing at your school.
