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 
  • Option 2 is about 8 1/2 pounds of clay and makes a tile/stone that is 11” x 11”, ¾” 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

Gather 3 friends to join the workshop and you get the workshop fee for free!
