Mother's Day Workshop - Driftwood Wall Hanging
Driftwood Wall Hanging Mother’s Day Workshop (Outside at Clay Studio)
Date: Sunday, May 9
Levels: All levels and ages welcome
Price: $180 per table (6 tables are available – each table seats up to 6). Each table will create one wall hanging together. Price includes instruction, materials, clay, glazing and firing.
Teacher: Juliette Fish
Description: Families will gather together under our mature oak tree and work collaboratively to create a beautiful wall hanging utilizing a variety of organic shapes to which textures will be applied. The glazed, textured shapes will hang from the driftwood with string. After the workshop, the Clay Studio team will glaze and fire your pieces, which will be ready to pick up about two weeks after the workshop. Families will then continue to work together at home to arrange, string and hang your ceramic pieces from your driftwood (instruction on arranging and hanging the pieces will be provided during the workshop).
Either before or after the workshop we encourage families to take a beach walk and gather driftwood stick to incorporate into your wall hanging (approximately 20-22 inches long). For families who cannot do this, a limited number of driftwood pieces will be available at the studio.
