$ 130  

In this Workshop we will be creating a petite creamer out of clay. This is a GREAT project for introducing folks to clay! Using a template that I created for this project, I will demonstrate how to assemble this lovely petite creamer. I have taught this project to 100’s of students and a frequent comment that I get is, “this was so much easier than I imagined.” It really is!
If you’ve been wanting to get your hands into clay and you are not sure where to start, this workshop is for you! If you are a seasoned clay person, this workshop is also for you! I will share a plethora of techniques and guide you every step of the way.

Underglaze transfers are all the rage in the ceramic community. I will show you how to add beautiful underglaze transfer designs to your petite creamer. It takes a little practice, however, once you have it down, you’ll be hooked!
I will transport the petite creamers to my home studio in Vancouver, WA. I will bisque fire them, add a clear glaze and glaze fire them. This will consist of 2 firings. Your petite creamers will be finished in 4 days and can be picked up at the hotel.
If you are unable to pick up your piece at the hotel, I can ship your item.

Prior to the workshop I need to know if you will be picking up your piece or if you would like me to ship your creamer. Shipping costs will be in addition to the Materials fee.

Students of every experience level are welcome!
