Surface Design with Caelin McDaniel of McDaniel Pottery
When: Saturday, November 17th, 2-4PM
Come and try your hand at some amazing techniques for decorating your pots. Local Ceramic Artist Caelin McDaniel of McDaniel Pottery will be hosting a workshop at the Pot Shop!
This one-day class will teach you how to use underglaze, slip-trailing, scratching and stamping techniques to enhance the surface of your pots. You'll be working with leather-hard and bone-dry clay tiles that you can give as gifts or use to make your house an even more enjoyable place to be. Nothing is better than learning how to boost your creativity on a cool Fall Saturday. (You know I'm right, don't cha?)
Feel free to bring something from home that would make a cool texture or stamp. Anything from a bolt to a pen cap. If not, we have tons at the Shop.
NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED, just bring your curiosity and your smiling face. :0)
This is a BYOB event, just please be responsible and respectful.

One-Day Classes - $75
Who wouldn't want to get dirty on a Saturday?! This one-day class is a great way for beginners to get their hands in mud and create something. (I promise, you will have fun doing it. It's almost impossible not to. Unless you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, of course.) The beginning of class will be a quick demo and then you get to sit at a wheel and create a pot of your own. Your piece will be trimmed, fired and glazed for you (you choose the color during class) and then you can pick it up in a week or two. All ages welcome. Kids under 8 with an adult please.

Six-Week Sessions - $250
Price includes instruction, tools to use during class, 25 lbs. of clay, glazes and kiln space. Additional clay can be purchased if you use up your original 25 lbs.
Don't be scared! I know you are :0) This class is for those folks who've never touched clay before or those who have worked with clay and just want to have some fun. We will cover the basics of preparing clay, centering on the wheel, throwing, trimming and glazing. Classes meet one day a week, and by the end of the session, you will have made at least ten pots that you can call your very own. Let me add that this isn't just a class, it's a great place to hang with new or old friends, learn something creative and have a lot of fun doing it. Make the most of your weekdays!
