Join Amy Smoot on November 19th to create your own clay Christmas ornaments! Choose from a variety of Christmas shapes to cut out your ornament, and decorate your ornament with textures and glazes in this hour-long workshop. Ornaments will vary in size by shape, but should fall within a 3"-4" scale. Participants will be given a slab of clay and will be able to make as many ornaments as they can from their slab.
Session A: 10 AM-11 AM
Session B: 11 AM-12 PM
Session C: 1 PM-2 PM
Session D: 2 PM-3 PM
Session E: 3 PM-4 PM
This class is for all ages, but participants 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. If you and your child would both like to create an ornament, you must purchase one spot for each participant.
Ornaments will be fired and available to pick up in Kentuck’s Gallery Shop within a few weeks. Participants will be contacted once they’re ready for pick up.
Instructed by Amy Smoot, this workshop will be held in the Georgine Clarke Building at 1922 5th Street Northport, AL 35476. Students should wear clothes that they don't mind getting clay or glaze on.
