CLASS LOCATION: Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, Rt 219 Hillsboro, WV 24946
This is a fun way to create your own coffee or tea mugs with funny faces or a design of your choice. Cris Bartlett will provide the clay mugs along with clay that each participant will use to embellish their mugs! Participants will not need to bring anything except a desire to learn and have fun with hand built pottery. You can expect to create your funny face or other design and then put some under glaze on your mug in that same class. Cris will then fire the mugs in her kiln and you can pick them up in two weeks. This class is suitable for older elementary and above aged children who must be accompanied by an adult. This is a good class to share with your child. If you want to bring your child and have the two of you work on ONE funny face mug, you can sign up for the me & mom/dad which means that you pay the price of one, but you both work on the same mug.
All Materials are provided by the instructor, Cris Bartlett.
