Dive into the whimsical world of garden gnomes with this Clay Encounter. You'll learn to sculpt, mold and paint your own charming ceramic stoneware garden gnome. Your gnome will be safe to live outside in your flower garden but is recommended to be brought inside during freezing temperatures. 

How it works:

This is a step by step instructed Clay Encounter that is intended for ages 8 and up. This price includes the Glaze Encounter which will occur at a later date after the bisque firing process is complete.  During the Clay Encounter you will learn to sculpt a garden gnome utilizing 1 pound of raw stoneware clay.  You will choose which accessories you want your gnome to wear. We anticipate this to take approximately 1 hours.

You will be contacted once the bisque firing process is complete and you will be provided a 2 week schedule to return for the Glaze Encounter.  In this step, you will learn to glaze your gnome with a dishwasher safe glaze.  Your piece will then be glaze fired and you'll receive a one week schedule for pick up.  

Things to note:

-No prior experience is required. 

-Participants ages 8-16 must be accompanied by a participating adult. 

-Workshop will be held at the WPG DIY Studio located at 318 N Clinton Ave, Saint Johns, MI 48879 unless otherwise stated.   

-Just as each artist is unique, your finished pottery will be as well. 

-You may bring food and beverages. 

-Dress to get messy!  Aprons are available.  

-If you are unable to participate in a Glaze Encounter during the two week schedule that is provided, you may pick up your project and return within 90 days at no additional cost.  If you return after the 90 day window, there will be a $10 firing fee applied.
