Clay Jack o'Lantern Workshop

With Halloween on the way, we wanted to offer something flavored for the season. In the Clay Jack O'Lantern workshop, we will provide you with a round thrown vase form that is still soft and supple enough to shape and carve into a pumpkin shape and add a vine stem. Then you can carve your clay pumpkin with the jack o'lantern face you desire (or leave it as an unadorned pumpkin if you choose). We have a couple of nice orange glazes to choose from, or you can opt for a color less traditional from the rest of our available glaze palette.

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.

Cost: $35 (payment required to reserve space)

*We can schedule additional workshop dates for parties of 6 or more. Deadline to sign up for a scheduled workshop is 6pm on the day prior to a workshop. Workshops with less than 5 paid sign-ups at that time will have to be rescheduled.

During workshops, Hamilton Williams Gallery often takes photographs and video of workshop participants, works-in-progress, and finished workshop pieces for the purposes of marketing future workshops and Hamilton Williams Gallery. By participating in a Hamilton Williams Gallery workshop, participants provide permission to Hamilton Williams Gallery to record and use photos and videos. Participants that wish to opt out of this provision should let us know when registering for the workshop.
