Join Karin for a fun and informative hand-building workshop where you will make a unique pair of mugs! After a short demo, you will experience rolling out your clay slab, choosing a shape, playing with textures, and adding handles! Your mugs will then be dried and bisque fired in our kiln – ready for glazing and decorating the following Sunday! Open to all levels – beginners welcome.
Materials will be supplied for this workshop (includes clay and glazes).
Space is limited
Day 1: Sunday April 7th 1:00-4:00 pm – Hand-building
Day 2: Sunday April 14th 1:00-3:00 pm – Glazing
Mugs will be available for pick up 1-2 weeks following April 14th.
