Textured Ceramic Planters


Come get your hands dirty, and learn a new ceramics technique!

Hand-thrown cylinders will be provided to students to add their own textural design (students receive two 3"x3" cylinders).

Learn how to create brutalist-style texture, create your own pattern, or a totally new texture! 
Students will have 2.5 hours to learn, practice, and execute their own texture onto two provided cylinders. (put a hole in your cylinder to make it a planter!).

Once pieces are dry, Melissa will hand-deliver to her studio to be fired to cone 6 in her kiln.
Melissa will glaze fire (three glaze options provided for students to choose from) and ship directly to students to enjoy and show off!

Skill set - beginner to expert! 

Finished pieces ship in appx. 7-10 days 

Tickets: $65
