In this 3-class workshop, you’ll learn and make pottery that you can use in your kitchen. We will review slab building, glazing, and sgraffito techniques — hand decorating by scratching off the top layer of glaze to make contrasting patterns.
Throughout this course, you’ll play with glazes on a pre-made mug, then create and sculpt your own slab mug. You’ll leave the workshop with 2 finished, glazed mugs to show off at home!
This is perfect for all levels. All materials are provided.
