Handcrafted Guacamole Bowls – A Stoneware Clay Workshop

Friday February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Event: Handcrafted Guacamole Bowl Workshop

Join us for an exciting and creative workshop where you’ll handcraft your very own guacamole bowl using stoneware clay! This event is perfect for both beginners and seasoned artisans who want to blend their love for art and culinary delights. This workshop requires 2 visits to our studio. The first visit is to craft your bowl, then you will return in about 2 weeks to glaze your bowl during any of our regular walk-in hours.

Event Highlights:

  • Introduction to Stoneware: Begin with an introduction to stoneware clay – its properties, potential, and why it’s perfect for making durable and beautiful kitchenware.
  • Hand-Building Techniques: Our expert instructors will guide you through the process of hand-building your bowl. You’ll learn how to use our templates to create your masterpiece using the slip and score technique.
  • Surface Decoration: Discover the art of decorating your bowl. This can include adding textures, carving designs, or using our cool tools to create a bowl that is uniquely yours!
  • Glazing and Firing: Choose from a range of glazes to finish your bowl. Your creation will then be fired a 2nd time in our kiln, making it food-safe and perfect for holding your delicious guacamole.
  • Take Home Your Masterpiece: Once fired, your one-of-a-kind guacamole bowl will be ready for you to take home, use, and cherish.

This workshop not only offers a fun and relaxing way to get creative but also provides you with a unique piece of functional art you’ve made with your own hands. It’s a perfect way to add a personal touch to your kitchen or to give as a thoughtful, handmade gift. No previous clay experience is required – just bring your enthusiasm and be ready to get a little messy.

Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot today and get ready to dive into the world of clay and create a beautiful, functional piece for your culinary adventures!  This class is appropriate for ages 13+
