5/8/21 - Kids Pottery Critters and Creatures - Making Miniature Figurines with Jean Skipper
Create 1 Small Critter or 2 Tiny Miniature Pottery Creatures that are as unique as you are! Birds, Snails, Monsters, and Frogs are all possibilities; and they may be made either as free-standing figurines or as ornaments or wall art.
Join Jean Skipper on Saturday, May 8th between 9:00 and 10:30 when she'll lead you in clay handling; slab, pinch pot and coil construction, texturing, and design as you create North Carolina Pottery Pieces similar to those shown in these photos.
If 1 or 2 just aren't enough, an extra set of creatures may also be made at an additional cost. This option is available only at the time of registration, and up to 4 creatures per guest may be made in a single class session.
The sky is the limit as you form, texture, shape, and embellish these treasures, and the pieces that you make are sure to be treasured for a lifetime. (They make wonderful gifts too!)
Beginners are welcome, and those age thirteen and younger are invited to attend.
The all inclusive price of this class includes supplies, tool usage, kiln firing, glaze selection, and instruction.
We are now offering two glazing options with all of our Pottery Classes. They are as follows:
- The first will allow your children to select a single glaze color during class. Their pottery pieces will then be dried, cleaned, kiln fired, glazed by the instructor, dried, and kiln fired again. When this process is complete, within 4 weeks, you'll be notified to pickup your finished pieces.
- The second will allow children to glaze their pottery themselves. After class, their pieces will be dried and kiln fired. When they're back in the gallery, you'll be notified that pottery is ready for glazing, and you and your children will be invited to join us for a Glazing Session. After glazing, pottery will be dried and kiln fired again, and you'll be notified when it's back in the gallery for pickup.
If you have any questions about our glazing options, please contact us at 910-245-4129 or info@ARTworksVass.com.
