LUNCH TOGETHER is part of the CREATING TRADITIONS SERIES designed to deepen the connections with loved ones and, to make your everyday memories magical.
During this class, your child will be able to create a salad/sandwich plate and a fruit bowl that can be used every day. This could be a wonderful opportunity for other members of the family to take the class, including you, the parent, and do something fun together in the comfort of your home. Grandparents can also take part in this awesome experience miles apart. We will be able to see and comment on what the others are doing thanks to the internet. It's going to be a lot of fun!
We'll be using slab-building method to create the two pieces, an ancient pottery-making technique that involves creating forms without a pottery wheel, using the hands, fingers, and simple tools.
Working with the earthy material this way is intuitive and, each one-of-a-kind piece created is a physical representation of the beauty found in natural imperfections.
After the class, the clay bodies will need to dry in your home for about one week, to ensure maximum success. Depending on where you live, i'll coordinate with you where to drop off the bowls so i can pick them up for glazing & firing in my studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. You can either collect the items yourself at the same drop off location or i can mail them to you. This will take about 3-5 weeks. I'll email you once your pieces are ready.
