Hale Farm & Village Presents Pottery Workshop in July and August

7/1/2019

When was the last time you learned a historic craft? In 19th-century-style pottery, slab construction allows the potter to easily repeat forms. This then offers the chance for creative surface design on pottery pieces, such as adding texture and details with rubber stamps, found objects, and more. After you hand-build your very own piece, it will later be salt fired, which is a beautiful and functional reflection of historical earthenware. Finished pieces will be available for pick-up after scheduled firing, approximately 4 weeks after the workshop date. Adults and youth age 11 and up Cost: $72 for members, $82 for non-members
