If you can stack cheese and crackers, then you can do this. You will take a glass blank and create your design with frit, pebbles, rods, bits, strips, stringers, and noodles.
You can make a stepping stone, box, frame, plaque, or flower pot. We also have some upgraded shapes like a mermaid, turtle, frog, fairy, unicorn etc. The class includes your base, mosaic materials, instructions, and grout.
Clay Hand Building
Everyone starts with the same amount of clay. We will feature a particular project at class and will walk you through step by step on that planned project. Items are typically slab rolled or made from pinch pots. We have featured things like plaques, pendants (for essential oils), bird feeders, clocks, bowls, handy holders, votives, garden stakes, trees, charcuterie boards and wind chimes.
Pottery Technique (Monthly Masterpiece)
We walk you step-by-step through the featured monthly pottery image, much like the canvas places. Everyone paints the same design, but you pick the pieces of pottery on which you want to do the image. Cost is $4 plus your pottery piece.
Sometimes we feature themed event like Harry Potter, Star Wars, Stranger Things, Game of Thrones, princess party, diva nights, yoga, sloth encounters, date nights, story time and summer camps. These are painting parties where you'll need to sign up to reserve your seat as they fill quickly.
This is an adult-only event where you paint pottery. We have all kinds of stamps, stencils, pouncers, tape, and ideas, so don't worry if you're not "creative". There are door prizes. Feel free to bring your favorite beverages, but please no food. Space is limited. We seat you in groups, so please provide a name when you reserve your spot.
We do a special date night for Valentine’s Day and Sweetest Day which are both RSVP events. You may bring your favorite beverage as we will show you how you can create a memorable date. We also find that parents enjoy bringing their kids individually for a special one-on-one date, too.
Paint ‘Til You Faint
Shortly after deer season opens every year, we have a day where we have extended hours. This gives you plenty of time to paint all your holiday masterpieces. We usually take reservations as this is a popular event.
