Make A Heartwarming Mug
Saturday, November 20th
10am-11:30am

Make a creative, one-of-a-kind clay mug just in time for the cold weather!
 
Handmade mugs make great gifts and seasonal decorations. Make a different mug for every mood, season, and holiday. You can never have too many mugs!
 
How will YOU use your mug: For hot chocolate? Warm apple cider? A special gift? A paintbrush holder? Sipping your favorite wintertime soup? Whatever you choose, your one-of-a-kind mug is sure to warm the heart & soul.
 
Long-time ceramics and pottery master Phil Wilson will be instructing the workshop. All materials provided. There will be time before the event to socialize over light snacks and alcohol-free beverages.
 
You will form your mug out of clay and glaze it in this class. Phil will take the mugs back to his ceramics studio to fire in his professional kiln. About two weeks later, your mug will be ready to pick up at our studio and use!
 
BONUS: Choose from our selection of instant hot drink mixes (hot chocolate, cider, and more) to take home with your mug!
