Intro To The Potter's Wheel
August 4 & 18
12:00pm - 2:00pm or 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Admit it, it looks easy! Now you can give it a try with our two hour introduction to the mysterious world of the potter's wheel. Get your hands dirty & see what all the fun is about. Demos along with personalized instruction get you from a lump of clay to your very own pot.
*If you choose to keep your creations there is an additional firing/shipping fee of $20 for the first pot and $10 for each additional pot.
Wilder Raku - Workshop/Demo
August 11 & 25
Anytime between 1:00 - 5:00pm
Your mother always told you not to play with fire… What did she know?
Experience the excitement of Raku. This Japanese quick fire pottery technique will captivate your spirit and bring out the creativity in you. Glaze a hand-thrown pot and let us fire it to a red hot 1500 degrees, pull it out of the kiln and into the reduction can. Watch the flames, smell the smoke and in a few minutes see your creations. Come play with fire.
