$175 Registration Fee - Includes Instruction, Bisque firing of piece if desired & refreshments during class. Please let us know of any food allergies when registering.
Saturday morning will consist of a demonstration by Patty, followed by students throwing their own forms for their teapots in the afternoon. Sunday will include an assembling demo with everyone participating in this step-by-step process along with Patty. This interactive process allows you to see-and-do immediately, rather than seeing the whole process then completing it later. Patty will provide a takeaway instruction of the teapot creation as a reminder of the process. Please bring your own clay, materials and tools.
