Two-Day Workshops  

Don't have the time to commit to an 8-week course? Our two-day workshops are the perfect option for you! Scheduled every Saturday from 1-3pm, you will spend your first day creating wheel and hand-thrown pottery. Day two will be spent finishing your pieces with professional and food-safe glazes. This workshop is the perfect way to spend your afternoon. Call Julie to reserve your spot!

Surface Decoration Workshop with Robin Tiede

Please join Earth and Fire Pottery Studio member and lifelong potter, Robin Tiede, for a dynamic two day workshop on surface decoration and manipulation. Robin will teach two distinctly different techniques that will enhance the surfaces of both wheel thrown pots and hand built clay pieces. The application of sodium silicate and stretching techniques will add interesting textures, while the second process called Mocha Diffusion will enhance your surface with beautiful watercolor-like design. Join this exciting workshop to learn how to apply a scientific approach to your clay surfaces! No experience necessary!
