Clay & Rosé: a two-part ceramics workshop
Jun 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This first in this series booked up so quickly last time that we decided another was in order for June! This time, we’ll be gathering in the Front Studio of the main House.
a two-part, hands-on wheel throwing + glazing workshop
Join House ceramicist Sarah Glass for this *two part* workshop at the House where you’ll learn the essential skills needed for making functional pottery and create your very own finished piece to take home and enjoy. This series is suitable for beginners and intermediates alike.
Part 1, June 9:
1pm – 4pm
Spend the afternoon learning ceramics basics and getting hands-on wheel throwing instruction using white stoneware clay. You’ll learn the necessary skills needed for making functional pottery (plates, bowls, cups) and get some time on the wheel, with tips and tricks provided by Sarah. Enjoy a glass of rosé, some handbuilding practice and the company of like-minded attendees, as well.
* After the first day, we’ll give your pieces some time to dry out before the next class. *
Part 2, June 23:
1pm – 3pm
Time to finish your piece! After they dry, you’ll return to the House for helpful techniques and hands-on instruction from Sarah for beautifully glazing your pottery. After glazing, Sarah will fire the pieces in the kiln, and we’ll schedule a day for you to pick up your finished work.
