Play in Clay: October 17 Evening
October 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$65
Come and experience the joy that comes from working clay by hand and transforming it into your own work of art. It is the joy of making. Our Play in Clay Workshops offer a 2-hour, hands-on pottery making experience.
Here is how it works:
Start the 2-hour workshop with a studio tour where you will learn how we transform lumps of clay into works of art led by a skilled member of the Island Stoneware team
Pick 1 to 3 forms, depending on size, from the shelf (Make as many additional pieces as you wish; the price is marked on the bottom of each piece)
Plan your pottery design (you can also get inspired by our many samples)
Let go of your need to make it perfect and enjoy the moment of building pottery from slab
Leave your work of art with us to be professionally glazed and kiln-fired
Your finished pieces will be ready approximately two and a half weeks after your session.
About building from slab
To build from slab you will roll the clay out flat and then shape it around forms of your choosing
Building from slab is fun because it is easy to learn the basics in just a few minutes
Building from slab doesn’t require the use of a potter’s wheel
