Join potter Kim Burnham of Imokim Pottery to try out decorating a ceramic vase with carved and decorated details. Students will have the opportunity to sketch out their own designs or use a provided template. Kim will throw a selection of bud vases before class and then share tips and tricks for adding simple images to greenware. The vases (approximately 6”x 3”) will be glazed with a clear top coat and then returned to MMFS for local pickup a few weeks later.

What skills will students learn?  You will learn techniques to transfer design ideas to pottery and the best methods for painting and carving into clay.

Instructor will provide:

  • Greenware Bud vase-made by the instructor in advance
  • All tools needed to paint and carve the project
  • Instruction Handout
  • Towels

Students are asked to bring: 

  • An apron
  • As your class is scheduled over a lunch hour, we highly recommend you bring a lunch or click here to learn about local eating opportunities in the area.
