Katie Hoffman and assistants from Nevadans for Cultural Preservation provided a hands on workshop. Participants got to see natural locally sourced clay in it raw form, after it had been ground, and when it was ready for forming. They got to try their hand at creating a vessel with both traditional and modern commercial clay. Both can be quite difficult for beginners. Participants had a great time and learned a healthy respect and appreciation for prehistoric ceramics they find when they are out monitoring archaeological sites or when they are visiting a museum.
