Adult Glaze with Kerri Holmes
Thursdays / 7 – 9:30 pm – October 14 – November 4

Explore surface decoration using ancient techniques. We will use coloured slips, stencils, and inlay to create patterns before firing the pottery. We also learn how to glaze pots with our studio glazes as well as with ready-to-paint glazes.

Layering glazes with varying degrees of control should bring surprising results. Our aim is to explore and delight in the gifts of the kiln!

Moms (or other family guardian) and tots are welcome to this playful activity time. Each session will have a guided project to help you get creative. Pendants, tiles, figurines, funny faces, soap dishes, mini cups, and chimes are some of the things we can make. Give it a try – mucky hands are happy hands!
