Calling all creative green thumbs! At this workshop you'll create ceramic garden markers - complete with hand pressed herb & veggie names - as well as one ceramic planter.
You'll roll your sleeves up and learn to hand build your pieces from a clay slab. While you're working, you'll learn about the stages of clay, basic hand-building techniques, and experiment with textures and design as you create in a laid back, fun, social atmosphere. You'll learn creative ways to apply texture or relief shapes as a design element, using materials pressed into the clay, or building raised texture using liquid slip. You'll also learn techniques for applying color with under-glaze on the clean, white earthenware.
We'll inspire you with creative ideas, instruct you on all the needed techniques and let you dive in and get busy in this all skill levels workshop! We will fire your clay pieces, and provide you with various pick-up or shipping options to claim your finished quotes in clay!
