As we move slowly move towards longer days and warmer winds, let us celebrate things that grow! In this workshop, participants will focus on ceramic pots that hold plants. By using a variety of techniques & soft slab construction, students will make pots and vessels for houseplants and succulents. Options include, but are not limited to tabletop or hanging planters, wall pockets or funky pots with personality - consider adding a face to your pot and letting the new plant act as an ever-growing hairdo. Add a little life and color to a sunny spot in your house. Grab a friend! Bring your Mom! Drink some wine and create something with purpose.
Session 3 will be a short, optional class offered to come in, see everyone's projects and plant a succulent in one of your newly finished pieces. Students can expect to make 1-4 pieces during class: depending on how you use your time - some people love to add a lot of detail to one, well-crafted piece, while others enjoy taking a more simplistic approach but making multiple projects.
Workshop series includes instruction/demonstration, examples, clay, glaze, tools, kiln firing, plants, soil, and wine!
