Love Your Mother: a ceramics workshop to celebrate all of our mothers just in time for Earth Day and Mother’s Day!
Join us for a 4 week introduction to ceramics workshop where we’ll be creating Earth Ornaments and Hearts.
  • Week 1: Get to know your clay: In this session, we will be learning the basics of molding clay and creating disc shaped earth ornaments.
  • Week 2: We’ll mold out hearts and then learn a carving technique called “sgraffito” to put your own designs and drawings into the clay (or simply choose a beautiful color).
  • Week 3: Glazes: This week we’ll add flares of color to our work, learning all about how glazes seal the clay when fired. (Leah will be like a magical elf firing the pieces in her kiln before bringing them back finished!)
  • Week 4: Social: We will celebrate each other’s finished pieces and hear about each artist’s experience. There will be the option to upcycle gift wrap your work for upcoming Mother’s Day!

Please make sure to wear your mask and clothes that can get dirty! We will have limited space to ensure everyone’s safety with Covid.

Class Fee: $100 per person fee includes instruction & materials.
Dates: Tuesdays, March 30, April 6, 13, 20* (April 20 will be a 1 hour social for artists to share their final pieces with the group before taking them home)
Times: 4pm-6pm
Where: Wild Bear Nature Center
Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.
