Fairy Houses - Hand-building Pottery Classes – Youth and Adult
$40 (plus shipping if required)

With the guidance and assistance of our pottery instructors, you will create your own ceramic fairy house using slabs of clay, patterns, textures stamps and your imagination. You’ll be able to get your hands dirty and enjoy the process of turning a lump of clay into a handmade piece of decorative pottery for your home or garden. Once your piece is assembled, you will get to highlight glaze details by painting with colored slips and then pick your choice of glaze. Later, we will dry, bisque fire, glaze and fire your fairy house again. The process takes about three weeks. Upon completion, we’ll ship your work to you.

*Must call or stop by to register*
(Pre-Registration is recommended as classes fill up quickly)
