This class is appropriate for students with all levels of experience. Together, using pinch construction we will make a luminary. Luminaries are a type of ceramic lantern. Luminaries are a fun alternative to a carved pumpkin you can use year after year. This easy two-part class is a fun way to bring something fun way to create some personalized holiday decorations or just bright light to the start of the fall season! These lanterns can be personalized by adding negative space cut outs for lights to shine through, texture, painted patterns, or custom monograms. Basic construction methods, template use, and surface treatment like slip decoration, and glazing techniques will be explored.
Bring an apron and towel, be prepared to get a little messy so things you won't mind getting dusty or stained on glazing day.
