 Last day to register is Friday, September 18th.  Space and stoneware is limited, please register to reserve your seat early.

Create a unique, one of a kind farm-to-table piece of stoneware pottery by experimenting with various glazes colors, combos and techniques.  Stoneware pottery is made from high fire stoneware clay, which is oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe.  We have 20+ different pieces ranging from $28 – $58.

Select your piece and colors the day of the workshop.

This hands-on workshop is an intro to stoneware glazes and their application. Stoneware glazes offer an array of colors that move and float on your piece and do magical things in the kiln.  Many will break over textures, revealing secondary colors and shades.  No two pieces are alike with the creative possibilities are endless.  Stoneware is a kiln fired art, please allow two weeks for your piece to be fired. You will be given pick up instructions during the workshop.

If you wish to paint multiple pieces, we suggest selecting one piece to begin, get your feet wet and if there is time during the workshop, you can purchase additional pieces on site.
