Mugs & Steins: Clay Workshop at BMBW

The folks at Brown Mountain Bottleworks have invited us back to offer one of our clay workshops on their turf, and we are happy to oblige! Join us for a fun night of clay work, dirty hands, and joyous libations! During the workshop, attendees will get to handbuild their very own ceramic mug or stein from materials and supplies that we will bring in for the occasion. We will start with a brief demonstration of how to handbuild a mug (or stein) and then give you plenty of time to create your drinking vessel masterpiece. As the workshop ends, we will ask you to select your glaze from our available glaze selection, then carefully bring the mugs back to the studio for safe drying and firing. Workshop mugs should be ready about three weeks after the workshop date.

Tuesday, January 28, 2020; 6-8pm

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.
