Get Your Hands Dirty

Enjoy creativity and comradery as our resident potter, Hamilton Williams, shows you how to create your own one-of-a-kind work. Workshops are oriented toward beginners so that in 2 hours or less participants can complete a project they can be proud of. Workshop projects are designed to teach participants essential clay techniques so that they can take on more challenging workshops in the future. All tools and materials, and some light refreshments, are provided.

Completed projects are left at the end of workshops so that they can be glazed and fired. Participants can select from one of several glaze colors or can opt to add on an auxilary glazing workshop in which they return to the studio to glaze their own piece.

Workshop participants will have an opportunity to exhibit their selected workshop pieces at Hamilton Williams Gallery in the Fall of 2016.
