Claymaking 4-Week Series
Arts & DIYNote: This is a multi-session event series. By purchasing the event package, you acknowledge that you can attend all event dates included below.
If you're wanting more than a single session of Clay Play, this 4-week series will give you room to stretch out, mess up, and do it all over again. Create a more complex project. Get really detailed and enjoy the glazing process. Improve your skills on the potter's wheel. Amaze friends and family by making personalized gifts!
Maximum 3 people per session, at safely distanced work tables. Each ticket is good for 4 consecutive weeks; contact me for alternate scheduling options.
Repeats weekly (Tuesdays 6-7:30pm). Sessions 1 & 2 will be focused on construction, while 3 & 4 will provide options for glazing and finalizing projects.
Materials & tools provided. Includes finishing assistance, as needed (smoothing, glazing & firing).
Projects will be ready for pick-up approximately 2 weeks after last class.
February Tuesdays: 2, 9, 16, 23
March Tuesdays: 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
Please wear a mask! Bring a hand towel and apron if you can, and wear studio clothing (some materials stain). Bring textures, ideas or clayworking tools if you've got 'em!
