Clay-making with Mitzi Davis
Build and decorate a distinctive clay dish for your table in this weekend workshop with ceramic artist, Mitzi Davis!
In this two-day workshop, ceramic artist and educator Mitzi Davis will guide workshop attendees (ages 15+) through the clay-making process of hand-building and decorating their own ceramic dishes for the table.
Day 1: Saturday, November 5 — 10:00 am–3:00 pm (construct)
Day 2: Sunday, November 6 — 10:00 am–3:00 pm (decorate/glaze)
Workshop location: Studio 207
Using the soft slab method, workshop attendees will construct cups, mugs and bowls while considering their own kitchen tables and the meals they eat there. Will your dish be used for a simple breakfast for one, or at a holiday party with many serving dishes? Would you serve guests small, after-dinner cordials or large cups of robust coffee? What kind of pottery do you need? What kind of pottery do you want?
Participants will construct their vessels on the first day and decorate/glaze the following day. Pieces will be fired and glazed by Mitzi and ready to pick up the second week of December.
Mitzi Davis is the owner of Mitzi’s Functional Ware House, mitzidavis.com, and Program Manager for the New Harmony Clay Project, nhclayproject.org.
Light bites and drinks will be served.
