An ocarina is an ancient flute-like wind instrument. Variations do exist, but a typical ocarina is an enclosed space with four to twelve finger holes and a mouthpiece that projects from the body. It is often ceramic, but other materials may also be used, such as plastic, wood, glass, clay, and metal. In this workshop, Albert Mishriki will guide children though the process of making a clay ocarina which will be fired over the following weeks in the SAM kiln.
