HANDBUILT MUGS

Saturday, January 14, 10am-noon

Make a Mug that is uniquely yours! We will teach you how to roll a slab of clay, texture it, assemble it and add a handle. 

At the end of the workshop, you’ll choose a glaze color, leave the mug with us, and we will fire and glaze it for you. It will be ready for your salted caramel hot chocolate as the fall days grow colder!

Create an adorable "Santa Gnome" to add a little fun to your home this Christmas season! You'll start with a flat sheet of clay, and Shannon will help you cut a form out of a template. 

Once you've assembled it, you'll sculpt details and add texture to bring your Santa to life! Your Santa will be glazed and fired for you and ready to enjoy before the holiday!
