January | Love Mugs | 1.5 Hr Instructor Guided Workshop


Workshop Details

Join us at the studio this January to make a charming Love Mug! In this 2 part workshop, you'll design, sculpt, and glaze your very own stoneware clay mug, perfect for your next delicious beverage.

Winter is a cozy time when we snuggle up with blankets, enjoy hot drinks, and spend time with our favourite people. You can make your very own Love Mug to make these moments even more special, with a hand made creation!


1. Build & Sculpt: Create your mug using our high fire clay. We will dry and fire the clay in the kiln. 1.5 hours of instruction, stay up to 30 min after to finesse.

2. Glaze: Return to the studio to add the beautiful glazes. Book at least one week after your build date. We recommend 1-1.5 hours, depending on the amount of detail :)

3. Pick Up: We will fire it again in the kiln. Approx. 10 days after glazing, it’s ready to be collected

Stoneware Clay 101

The most important thing to remember when working with clay is to relax and enjoy the process of making hand made art! Clay is like magical mud for creating fantastic pottery and cool ceramics. First, you shape it into whatever you want. Then it has to air dry and go into a super-hot oven called a kiln, where it gets fired at really high temperatures (around 1,200°C!). After it’s been fired once it’s ready for the colourful and clear glazes! Finally. it gets fired again to cure the glazes to the clay.
