In this student-led workshop, we will explore the techniques used to make pierced ceramic vessels, such as candle holders and decorative vases. This workshop will take place in two parts. 

In the first session, each participant will be provided with a pre-thrown vessel, and we will use a variety of tools to add designs and piercings to the surface of the vessel while learning about strategies for working with leather-hard clay. 

No previous experience in ceramics is necessary to participate in this workshop!
Workshop attendees can choose to pierce a vessel which they have thrown prior to the workshop, however these vessels should be leather hard when the workshop takes place. This workshop can support up to 6 participants.

Cancellation policy: Registrants may cancel their enrollment 48 hours (2 days) before a class begins for a refund or credit. After this deadline, no refund or credit is available. GAAC/The Stew reserves the right to cancel classes due to a minimum enrollment not being met. In that event, participants will be notified and will be able to choose between a refund or credit for a future class.
