This is not your typical pottery workshop!! We will be working with textures, your favourite leaves and premium stoneware clay and glazes to make the perfect fall centrepiece/platter to enjoy this fall season.  This is a fun and rewarding experience!

These workshops are designed to teach you the process of hand building pottery without the longterm commitments.
You choose the projects you want to learn and you make it while you are learn!!
Once you have mastered the skills, you can come in and use studio time to create many  platters and get your Christmas shopping list crossed off!!!
Pottery makes a great gift!

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:  Our instructor is a  high school teacher. She will walk you through step by step and teach you how to construct the perfect platter for your holiday entertaining. You will learn how to use the tools and all the steps to build your centre piece. You will work with a combination of textures and learn to put them together to create a gorgeous centre piece that will leave your guest in awe.  In the second workshop you will learn different techniques and how to apply premium glazes to enhance the textures in your final work of art and bring the overall design together.  Here, in our studio we use high quality premium glazes to ensure that your product is the highest of quality and will last a lifetime so you can pass your handmade pottery down as an heirloom if you wish! Your work will be fired twice, once after you construct the platter and once after you glaze it. Every project will be successful with this method!

Once you learn these techniques you are welcome to come use the open clay studio to make more for all your friends and family.   They make great gifts!

WHAT YOU NEED: Bring your own favourite leaves to impress into the clay.  Choose a variety of sizes of 3-5 leaves.Or use our textures to enhance your design. Everything is supplied.

WHAT MAKES THIS WORKSHOP DIFFERENT THEN THE REST:  This is two day workshop working with premium stoneware clay, specially crafted premium glazes and glaze techniques that will enhance the textures in your platter.  Once this glaze is fired on, your platter will be food safe, dishwasher, microwave and even oven safe if you wish!!  The premium clay and glaze used will stand the test of time.  ALL Premium glazes require that you fire your pottery before applying a glaze and a second firing is required. 

 This workshop is a fun and rewarding experience for even the most beginner potter and you will learn the foundations, techniques and tools used to work with clay while making the perfect centre piece for entertaining.  After this workshop you will have all the skills to make many more platters.  We offer open studio time that you can come in and create.  We also have all the supplies and kits to assist you in setting up a little workshop at home to make your pottery and bring it to us for firing!

This is a great class for those who want to learn pottery but do not have the time to take long term classes. Students will learn how to use the tool, techniques and how to work with clay one project at a time and start to create from home!!

In this workshop you will create your platter on Thursday and you will come back to glaze it when it has been fired!! We will be using  premium stoneware clay, (made for oven/microwave safe projects), and this workshop includes all your firing and glazing.  Glazes will be premium quality glazes (made for food safe dishes) and have a great selection of glaze combinations.
