Beloved potter Connie Helke is generously donating her time to benefit Marine Mills Folk School!  Your class fee will go 100% to supporting our new folk school.

Be one of the lucky few to spend an afternoon with Connie, learning to create a functional mug complete with handle.  You will learn to roll out a slab of white stoneware clay, cut, add texture and then form it into a mug with handle.  The class will take place at Connie’s studio in Marine on St. Croix and will be limited to only 4 adult students, so register soon!

Students will return for an hour in 3-4 weeks, date to be mutually agreed upon, to glaze their mugs after they have been dried and bisque-fired.  After glazing mugs will be fired in Connie’s kiln once again to create a mug that is dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.

Students bring:

  • Apron or large shirt
  • 3 paper grocery bags to keep mug from sticking to table

 

NOTE: Be aware we may cancel 5 days before class date if a minimum number of registrations not reached. We work to balance teachers’ need to plan for a class with students’ busy schedules — not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!
