Drop-in Santa’s Workshop

10 AM- 2 PM

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 are limited and you will be able to choose from a variety of project options.

Projects will be ready for pickup exactly 2 weeks later.
