A great opportunity to see if this is your next hobby! or simply cross off your bucket list!

Your pots will be finished and fired for you,  in the colour of your choice.  Ready to be picked up within 4-6 weeks.
They will be food safe,  dishwasher,  microwave and oven safe.

HANDBUILDING EXPERIENCE:
Your time will be spent molding and shaping clay into your own special creation. To individualize your piece, you may add texture using stamps and other random finds we have in the studio. Feel free to bring something of your own to press into the clay to personalize your piece even more!
Options Include:
• mug
• canoe
• succulent planter – either pinched, coiled, or cut out of a slab of clay
• jewelry/ring holder
• garlic grinder plate (make 2 – one for you and one for a friend!)
• sugar & creamer set – the sugar bowl will be a pinch pot; the creamer will be made from a slab, giving you the experience of 2 methods working with clay
• garden stakes
• vase – either 2 small or 1 large
• small dessert tray
• cereal sized bowl
• pinch pot – make 2! (could be used as a sugar bowl, dip bowl, succulent planter, etc.)
• soap dish
• Or – Have your own idea?

Let us know at time of booking and we can discuss possibilities!

WHEEL EXPERIENCE:
Learn the basics of the pottery wheel! For the full experience, I will be encouraging you to make your pots completely on your own (i.e., your hands, not mine). This will give you full pride in the pieces you will take home. I will begin with a step-by-step demonstration, then guide you along the way. In this workshop, you will be able to create a few small bowls or cups.
