We are planning ahead for December’s busy party-going season. Let us help you add a personal touch to your carefully selected hostess gifts, or holiday packages. Join us for some meaningful quality time for parents, grandparents or caregivers with your child in our clay workshop. You get to play with clay and create one of a kind white ceramic bisque ornaments together. Your first slab of clay will give each person enough raw material to create 10 small ornaments. You can purchase additional clay if you are are in the mood for more! Our teacher, Shayne, will provide expert guidance, as well there will be samples and inspiration pictures available. Suitable for beginners.
Please note that clay pieces must be picked up a week after the workshop.

What she enjoys most about teaching is constantly creating new projects to teach in a simple and step-by-step fashion to give her students a strong understanding of the clay medium, giving them the satisfaction of having created what might have seemed impossible to make, and inspiring them to build their own creative work.
