Ceramic Buttons and Earrings

$25

with Joshua Rysted

Calendar Sep 2, 2017 at 1 pm, runs for 2 weeks

You probably never though about ceramic buttons or earrings, but clay can look like almost anything. Carve it, shape it, roll it, stamp it, glaze it. Whatever you want, you can do it. In this two day course, you will create up to five pairs or earrings or ten buttons or a combination of each (15 items max per person). Day one will be shaping and forming your buttons or earrings. Day two the following week will be decorating with glaze. Your finished pieces wil include earring findings. No previous clay experience is required for this class. All tools and supplies will be provided by the clay studio. Projects will be glazed and fired and ready for pick up approximately one week after the last class.

Registration begins Sept. 6th. $20.00
