Brighten up your mid-winter nights with a ceramic lantern. In this one-day course, you will use slabs of clay to hand build a beautiful pierced lighthouse style lantern. The slabs of clay will be cut so that a tealight shines through the slits.
Come experience working on the potter's wheel in this two-hour session for adults. Working on the wheel is an age-old practice of using your hands and a spinning wheel to create useful and beautiful objects out of clay. You will learn the basics of centering the clay on the wheel, opening the form, and pulling up the walls to make everything from bowls to vases. Up to three completed pieces per person will be glazed in your choice of color and will be ready for pick up approximately two weeks after class. Your finished projects will be microwave and dishwasher safe. No previous clay experience is required for this class. All tools and supplies will be provided by the clay studio.
In this one-day class, you will use slabs of clay to make a useful French butter dish. If you are unfamiliar with the item, then you are in for a treat. This little crock allows butter to stay fresh and spreadable without refrigeration. It has two parts: a base that hold a small amount of water, and a lid cup which gets packed with fresh butter. When the lid is put on the base, the water creates an airtight seal that protects the butter from going rancid. Leave the crock out on the counter and enjoy fresh spreadable butter anytime.
