ONE & A HALF DAY WORKSHOPS | $105 + HST 9am - 4pm, & 1pm - 4pm

***Visiting Instructor Mark Budd

Mugs just might be the most important ceramic objects, but making a 'good' mug can pose some real challenges. During this one and a half day intensive, hands-on workshop, participants will explore elements of design to gain a greater understanding of what makes a 'good' mug. This understanding will be put to the test as students take their projects from concept to drawing to prototype. Are you dealing with 'attachment anxiety'? Want to get a handle on making handles? Special care and attention will be paid to the relationship between handle and object as participants work to create a signature series of mugs.

MATERIAL COST: $30.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop.

Please note: There is one day between the two days of instruction, to allow for the clay to be bisque fired.
