Service Description

Garden gnomes are not just adorable additions to your garden; they bring joy and a touch of magic to any space! Join us for a hand-building workshop where you can craft your very own ceramic gnome using the pinch pot method. No prior experience necessary, and open for the whole family (ages 8+ recommended) – our instructors are here to guide you through every step of the way! During this 1.5 hour workshop, you will be instructed by one of our studio team members on how to shape and design a unique gnome, ready to watch over your home or garden. Add hair, hats, flowers, mushrooms, those button gnome noses- let your imagination run free! After the workshop, we will bisque fire your piece, as well as glaze it to one color of your choice.
