Create one-of-a-kind glazed ceramic ornaments using textured stamps and clay tools. We’ll press botanical designs into the clay body and glaze fire them to create a gloss finish. We’ll design and make 4-8 ornaments during the first class, and glaze them during the second. The resulting ornaments will be colorful flat ceramic pieces suitable for hanging in groups or individually on your fireplace, in your windowsills, on festive garlands or holiday decor–the possibilities are endless! The ornaments will be ready for pick-up at the Garden a few days after they’re glazed.

All programs are subject to change.
