AGES 6–9 YEARS: 10AM & 1PM. This fun workshop offers kids the opportunity to paint and create hanging ceramic sculptures!

Participants will then use twine, beads, and a found branch to assemble their final ceramic sculpture which they can take home to hang and display that day. AGES 10–14 YEARS: 4PM. Learn to make hanging ceramic sculptures from scratch! This workshop will introduce participants to cutting shapes out of clay slabs and how to work with underglazes and carving techniques to give their clay pieces unique textures and detailing. There will be a mini follow up event the following week at Studio 116 when participants will pick up their fired clay pieces and assemble them to complete their one of a kind hanging ceramic sculpture. All children must be accompanied/supervised by an adult during the workshop (adults are not required to participate).

Clay Mask Making with Georgina Lohan

Clay slabs will be prepared ahead of time and a wide variety of tools, stamps, cookie cutters, fabrics and other materials for textures will be available. Instruction will be tailored to the individual’s needs and skill level. There will be a limited number of pre-fired masks available for decoration with acrylic paint for those who prefer to start with them rather than build their own. Participants will be instructed on how to lay the slabs onto the hump molds and create elements to add to the mask such as textures, clay leaves, flowers, and stamped designs. Completed pieces will be fired and attendees will be notified of pick-up dates and location.
