Fall Workshops 2019

  • Sunday 10/13 2:00-5:00 Azure Unicorn

Come and learn this beautiful technique using alcohol markers (left photo). It is easy enough for even the kids to do! We start with a piece that has been glazed and fired, then add color and coat with a brush-on sealer. Technique is decorative only and cannot be used on mugs or plates.  We will be decorating the faceted standing unicorn shown on the right.  Workshop fee of $20.00 includes everything you need. Seating is limited so register early. Adults who accompany children can work on something else if they choose ($5.00 studio fee + price of the bisque).
Call 330-219-8001 to register. Only 3 unicorns left so register soon.

  • Sunday, 10/20 2:00-5:00 Harvest Jar Fashenhue

Dona 234 Harvest Jar CC


Learn to use Fashenhues translucent stains to create this beautiful Fall Harvest Jar. There are four cute little squirrels with fall leaves and acorns surrounding the pumpkin. Inside is glazed so it can be used as a food container. Outside will be sealed and can be rinsed off but it is not dishwasher safe.  Workshop cost of $20 includes everything, even use of our brushes. Call 330-219-8001 to register. Only 6 pieces left.

  • Sunday 11/10 Holly Wreath with Small Titmouse (Club David majolica project)

Holly Wreath with Small Tit Mouse


This is a David Hoff Brushstroke Workshop. We are using a majolica technique, which means painting with colorful underglazes over an unfired satin or matte glaze. Because the glaze needs to dry 24 hours before painting, it is important to register. We will paint our design on an 11-inch diameter coupe dinner plate, perfect for serving holiday cookies or giving as a gift. Not a kids workshop, but teens and adults are welcome.

KIDS KRAFTS is a Santa’s workshop where kids can make unique gifts for family and friends while Mom & Dad go Christmas shopping. Many items can be made for just $10 and that also includes a drink & snack. Most kids can paint for about 2 hours, tweens and teens maybe for 3 hours. Toddlers can paint with Mom’s help but cannot be dropped off for the event.

BABY PRINTS is a workshop where Mom and friend paint underglaze on baby’s feet or hands and press onto a plate. It is helpful to have an extra person to hold baby for the printing and also while Mom finishes detailing the plate. (Or come back another evening without the baby). This is a unique gift for Grandma and other family members.
