ONSITE: Pinch Pot Clay Candle
Learning the historical methods of making pottery. Starting from a ball of clay and ending with a beautifully formed and decorated pinch pot, you will learn the history and fundamentals of working with clay. You will make a vessel (or more) that you will decorate with a variety of colors, textures and illustrations. At the completion of the class you will walk away with a refillable candle that will definitely be the talk of your next dinner party. Best of all, you will learn about a special type of eco-friendly pearled candle wax that requires no melting and is safe to keep around young children and pets!
- Please come to the workshop with a few surface decoration inspirations that could help guide your design process. Can be through digital or printed images, drawings, natural phenomena. Examples: Flowers, patterns like checkerboards or zebra stripes, the shape of a river, etc.
