Words and typography can move and inspire us. Our Quotes in Clay project captures your love of great typography, the custom style of hand lettering classes, and the impact and keepsake quality of hand crafted ceramics.
During this workshop, you'll roll up your sleeves and learn to hand-build a wall plaque that after firing can be styled as a stand alone statement piece - or easily converted to be used as a washable chalk or white board. You choose your words & decor style: elegant and thoughtful, or whimsical and fun!
You'll learn about the stages of clay, basic hand-building techniques, and experiment with textures, create relief areas through stamping, scoring, and slipping; as well as using custom design elements to reflect your own personal style. 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 techniques and let you dive in and get busy. These make such a lovely housewarming or holiday gift, but you may not be able to part with them! Your art piece will be kiln fired and available for pick-up at the studio or shipping the following week.
- Two hours of ceramic hand building instruction
- Use of clay, ceramic & stamping tools, glazes
- Selection of your material (suede, ribbon, wire, twine) to hang your plaque
- Kiln firing service
- The option to have your fired piece shipped (you pay the postage) to you or a gift recipient.
