Service Description

As the days grow shorter and the crisp, chilly air sets in, there's nothing quite like cradling a warm mug filled with your favorite hot beverage. We invite you to join us in the studio for a two-hour workshop where you can craft your very own ceramic hand-built mug adorned with patterns and designs. Whether you're a seasoned artist, or just touching clay for the first time, this workshop is designed for every skill level (ages 8+ recommended). Under the guidance of our experienced instructor Chris, you'll be supported through the process of building a functional mug that you can use all throughout the upcoming chilly months. From building your mug using rolled slabs, securing a handle, to adding decorations with various stamps and pattern tools, you'll come away with a creation that reflects your unique style. Bring a friend or family member for a cozy and creative morning together! After the workshop, we'll take care of the kiln firing process. You'll return in a few weeks to pick up your completed mug, fired with a single color glaze of your choice. Custom glazing is available if desired at an additional cost. Dress comfortably. We recommend wearing clothes that you don't mind getting a little messy. We'll provide the aprons and the fun! With the holiday season just around the corner, this workshop could be the perfect opportunity to create a heartfelt, handmade gift for someone you love.
