Have you been wanting to try your hand at ceramics? Join Cordovan clay teacher Kim Block to create beautiful hand formed dishes using Mother Nature’s leaves.

Beautiful specialty glazes will be available for your choosing. On Day 1, you will be taught how to use clay and tools to form your pieces. Cordovan will then fire them for you so that the fancy glazes can be utilized. On Day 2*, you will be taught how to glaze your pieces. Cordovan will again fire them and will let you know when they are ready for pickup.

*If you are unable to attend on Day 2 please let us know and we will be happy to set up another day for you to come in.
