Hand Built Textured Clay Mugs

We will be making these amazing mugs by hand from clay.  We have lots of texture options and will help you all along the way how to make your very own stoneware mug.  After the class the mugs will need to dry for approximately 2 weeks and be fired in the kiln before glazes may be added.  You can come back and glaze them yourselves or we can glaze them for you (both and no additional cost)  This class is for 2 handmade mugs.
