About the event
This event is held in the White Oak Pavilion
Tiles and plaques will be the focus of the workshop. The clay is red earthenware containing sand with a coarse texture and when fired can withstand wet freezing temperatures.
No clay experience needed! Just a desire to join in the camaraderie of creating. A short demonstration showing materials, tools, and techniques will get you started!
Designed for persons aged 17+.
You will roll out the clay and use your creativity to decorate the surface with stamps, sgraffito (scratching clay) and appliqué (applied shapes) techniques. Assistance is available.
- Tools and ideas are provided
- You may bring ideas, images, stamps and cookie cutters to decorate your tile
- You will be working with damp red-brown clay - this is not a messy or muddy process!
- Dress comfortably for the weather and in clothing that can be washed
Materials - Two size options are available and are payable at the workshop
- Option 1 is about 6 pounds of clay and makes a tile/stone that is 8” x 8”, ¾” thick OR a plaque 10” x 10”, ½” thick
- Option 2 is about 8 1/2 pounds of clay and makes a tile/stone that is 10” x 10”, ¾” thick OR a plaque 12” x 12”, ½” thick
Sizes are approximate based on how the clay is rolled out. Your “leftover” clay can be used to make a few plant stakes or a small plaque.
Material fee for the clay is due at the workshop, payable by cash or check
Option 1 = $25 - Option 2 = $35
