Create nature-inspired gifts! In this beginner friendly clay workshop, we will turn a slab of clay into holiday ornaments, small dishes, candlestick holders, and more. We will use plants and leaves to create beautiful details before cutting and shaping our objects. Then, we use underglaze to add pops of color to our creations. Participants can plan on making up to 6 items from their slab. Your handmade gifts will be glazed, fired, and returned to you before the holidays.


  • Registration is required and limited
  • Registration closes Saturday, December 2nd at 4:00pm
  • Price includes material fee $20 includes the firing and single glaze choice
