Mini Ceramics Workshop: Create a Personalized Mug

Jul 13, 2022 9AM-12PM

CONCEPT: Learn how to design and create the perfect mug, just for you! Using handbuilding techniques and paper patterns, each participant creates their own cup and handle that fits their aesthetic and useful needs. Participants are guided through basic ceramic techniques and get the chance to get their hands dirty.

MEDIA: Slab building, coil building, stoneware, glazes, high temperature firing

Workshop participants ages 13 and up will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination (i.e., two weeks have passed after receiving the second dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer MRNA vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine). Additionally, if six months have passed since completing the Moderna or Pfizer series or two months have passed since receiving the J & J vaccine, then a booster is also required. Ideally the booster would have been administered at least two weeks prior to coming to Anderson Ranch. Click here to view our full Health & Safety Plan.
