About the event

Join our Brand New beginner ceramic workshop on Thursday nights!

What is a vessel? A ship? Yes, but it's also "a hollow container, especially one used to hold liquid, such as a bowl..." says the Oxford Dictionary.

Join this workshop to find out the different methods to create all types of beautiful, elegant, and functional vessels. Explore your imagination and create something into reality. Work with clay by learning two clay building techniques (coil and slab), become familiar with this material and how it moves and bends to bring your vision to fruition.  Play around with texture, prints, and stamps, and learn to glaze your artwork. Thus, creating  seamless, well-crafted vessels made by you. Each vessel has a max height of 1 ft (12 inches). All projects are fired in a kiln on our premises, and you will be able to take your artwork home once fired.

Also, enjoy a cup of soothing tea, as the Teaching Artist will be serving tea blends from Strob Apothecary, where the Teaching Artist apprentices for essential oil and herbal training.
