Santa’s Workshop Saturday

December 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$18 – $35

Our Santa’s Workshop series returns for 2022!

Beginning November 19th, a workshop will be held every Saturday and Sunday from 11am-12pm through December 18th.

We invite you to come in and decorate a variety of pre-made Holiday Projects to celebrate the holiday season.  All projects are handmade by our Resident Artists and bisque fired, making them ready for your own decorations–using our glazes/paints.  There is no pre-registration, this workshop is for walk-ins only.  You can choose to decorate your project in our classroom, or take it home and return it to us later for firing.

All clay projects will then be clear coated and fired in our kilns. Glass Ornaments will also be fired in our kilns to smooth all the edges. Projects will be ready for pickup exactly 2 weeks later.

Projects are limited and you will choose from a variety of project options including (while quantities last):
