AX is pleased to offer a build-a-mug workshop. AX’s new ceramics centre coordinator, Alana Wilson, will walk participants through the step by step process of handbuilding a mug and decorating it with underglazes. Participants will leave their beautiful creations to be fired and glazed, and they will be available to pick up the following week. 

During this workshop, Knocks cafe will be open to sell refreshments. Just keep in mind that your hands will be covered in clay, so we don’t recommend ordering food.

This workshop is recommended for anyone  who wants to build and decorate their own mug and make a fun evening of it.

Register here by April 10. Spaces are going to fill up quickly!

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