Register for a Workshop from Home!

In an effort to help make up for missed classes and workshops due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are starting a new webinar series focused on techniques! We’re all used to working from home by now, so why not Workshop from Home?

Our first Workshop from Home webinar features ceramic artist and educator Ashley Kim! In this demonstration, we’ll take a deep dive into Ashley’s handbuilding and decorating techniques for one of her signature vase forms.

  • Learn to build an asymmetrical vase form using coils and slabs
  • Make instant lace transfers
  • Top it all off with stencil-resist and sgraffito decoration
  • and much more!

It’s just like an in-person workshop, but you are guaranteed a front row seat! Ask questions throughout, or during the Question and Answer Session at the end.
Registration is $35, and registrants can access a recording of the video for 30 days following the event to revisit techniques! Space is limited – Register today!
