UPDATED December 1, 2022
Due to COVID-19, all workshop attendees must wear masks.  We can not remain physically distanced while in the workshop, so masks are required.  N95 masks are strongly recommended because they ALSO are a great dust mask.
I can accommodate a maximum of 3 people in each workshop.

A Casual Introduction to The Potter’s Wheel
Date:
DUE TO THE ARTIST’S INJURY, WORKSHOPS ON THE POTTER’S WHEEL ARE ON HOLD
Cost: 
$85 which includes ALL materials, glazes and firing of the project.
Level of Skill Needed to Attend: None to a little experience working with clay.

In this two-part workshop you will get a chance to try your hand at the Potter’s Wheel and learn the basics as well as get a chance to glaze your own pieces.
Part 1 – The Basics
How to properly wedge your clay to prepare it for throwing on the wheel.
How to center the clay, cone up and why it is done.
How to open the clay and make a cylinder and a bowl form on the wheel.
How to trim a foot ring for a beautiful finish.

Part 2 – Glazing your pottery
After your piece has been made and trimmed by you, it will dry and then it will be bisque fired for you. You will be returning to the pottery to glaze it in Part 2. At this pottery, we dip and pour glazes, but there are options to work with oxide washes or a secondary glaze if you have the notion to wield a paint brush. Multiple colours can be used when dipping or pouring as well. After glazing, the pieces will be fired. I will call you when they are ready to be picked up.

Signing up: Please call 819-281-3307 or send an email to LM@LMSerafin.com. I will confirm the dates with you and then you will be asked to pay for the workshop.
Cost: $85.00. All materials and firing fees included. Can be paid by Interac eTransfer (preferred) or PayPal (add 5%). Fees MUST be paid in advance of workshop. Once you are signed up and have paid for your time here, there are no refunds unless there are extenuating circumstances like illness, natural disaster or death of close kin.
