Introduction to Handbuilding with Clay

with Alba de Béjar

“Art for me is a way to express, process and take stock of what’s going on around and within me. In any of its forms, art gives me the freedom to explore ‘being’ at different stages of the becoming process and I truly find that both fascinating and liberating.”
-Alba de Béjar
