Friday, November 9th
Slab Pot Class with Vagabond Ceramic’s Alex Kachenko
$30 per person
Agateware pottery is made by taking clays of different color and combining them in layers, and working the clay to create a stratified pattern reminiscent of agate stone. This process is often done on the pottery wheel, which created a swirled pattern, but when made from stacked slabs of clay, it allows for a greater variation in the patterns and forms that can be created. We will be rolling, stacking, and manipulating three clay bodies to create an agate slab. Using soft slab construction techniques, we will loosely form the slab around a mold to form an expressive 4 inch flower pot. After the workshop, I will take your pieces to my studio, fire them to 2200 degrees Fahrenheit, and return them to City Planter for pickup 2 weeks after the event.
Please call the shop to reserve a spot or sign up on-line. Space is limited, so registration is required.
Friday, November 16th
$50 per person
A terrarium is a sealed glass vessel containing soil and plants. In this class, you will learn how to build and care for a terrarium of your very own. Customize your creation with our wide selection of plants, stones, moss and small figurines.What is a Cac-terium you ask? We made it up! It is a terrarium that is open (without a lid) that would allow you to plant cacti and succulents (both of which will not survive in an enclosed, moist environment) Participants will choose between building a traditional terrarium OR a Cac-terium. S We serve light refreshments before (and during!) class so feel free to make those dinner plans late and come create your own little plant world.
Terrariums make great gifts!
