Sip & Ceramics: Hand-Built Pottery

Create your own decorative dishwear!

*This workshop will be rescheduled... stay tuned!

Sip wine & create your own decorative dishwear!

In this workshop, participants will use soft clay slabs and a variety of paper templates and hump molds to make beautiful and impressive ceramic pots and dishes. Forms can include, but are not limited to plates, bowls, cylinders, vases, cups and butter dishes! Come with an idea or let the demonstrations and available templates guide you through the process.

Depending on how you use your time, students can expect to make 1-4 pieces during class time. One person may want to make one, highly decorated, well crafted piece, while someone else may want to keep it very simple but leave with a set of 4, either approach is encouraged.

All materials will be provided, as will wine. The first session will be our wet clay day, where after the demonstrations, students will have approximately 2-2.5 hours to make, construct, decorate and refine. Session 2 will be all about surface design, glaze and color!
