11.10.19 — Ceramics: Hygge Village Workshop


11.10.19 — Ceramics: Hygge Village Workshop


Workshop taught by: Courtney with Brush Strokes Pottery

Date: Sunday, November 10th

Time: 1pm-3:30pm

Experience Level: Open Level

Get into the holiday + cozy (hygge) spirit at our first holiday themed ceramics workshop of the season! Was what is hygge? Pronounced as “hoo-ga”, Hygge is a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).

It’s going to be an afternoon of fun as Courtney guides you through the process of building your very own holiday village that will add coziness to your holiday decor this season!

She will begin the class going over ceramic techniques and introduce you to different ways to work with the clay. You will then move on to hand building your houses, you will get to customize them with different windows and door configuration, and have the opportunity to personalize them with different colors and accents.

All materials for the workshop will be provided and you'll get to make 2 ceramic houses during this class. Once fired, these look adorable with tea light candles that shine through the windows and doors :)

*Note that all pieces will need to go through glazing and a couple of firing processes and will be ready for pick up 2 weeks after the workshop. 

What you'll get: 

  • 2.5 hrs of personalized workshop instruction

  • Clay (enough for 2 handmade houses)

  • Use of clay tools, templates + supplies

  • Sips + Treats

  • 10% off The Paper + Craft Pantry retail

All workshop sales are final- no refunds or exchanges.  Ticket sales will end 24 hours prior to workshop.
