Join Ax’s Ceramics and Workshop Coordinator Alana Wilson in welcoming spring with this four week ceramics workshop focusing on planters. Using the coil and pinch method, participants will hand build a series of large planters/ flower pots/ vases for use inside or outside the home. At the end of the workshop, you will have learnt and practiced new ceramic techniques and you will take home at least two large pots decorated  with underglazes and ready to be filled with plants. 

Absolutely no prior experience is necessary.

If you have any questions, or if you need help filling out the online form, please contact us at ceramics@axartscentre.ca or 433-8351.
