Create up to 10 ceramic ornaments right before the holidays. You will use cookie cutters to form ornament shapes. Bring your personal favorites, or pick from a variety of shapes provided by the instructor. You will design and decorate your ornaments in class and return a week later to pick them up after being fired. Cost includes all materials, use of tools and firing.

There is plenty of cold weather left. Come create a toasty adult size pair of mittens at this time. Bring along a washed wool or wool blend sweater, paper and fabric shears, pins, 1/3 yard of fleece and a portable sewing machine in working order if you can. A machine will be available to share if necessary along with extra sweaters and fleece for a nominal fee.
