Ceramic Wall Plaque Workshop

Words can move and inspire us.  Combining words + art enables you to visually express your thoughts in a meaningful and lasting way!  ~ A perfect combination!

Our Ceramic Plaque workshop is both expressive and fun!  The hardest part is deciding on a word or phrase that is meaningful to you (or the recipient of your thoughtful gift!)  - then you can leave the instructional guidance to us!

During this workshop, you'll roll up your sleeves and learn to hand-build your plaque from a clay slab.  You choose your style:  elegant and thoughtful,  whimsical and fun, tongue in cheek...??

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 techniques and let you dive in and get busy!  All skill levels welcome!  These make such a lovely housewarming gift, but you may not be able to part with them!

Your creations will be kiln fired and available for pick up or shipping the following week.
