Valentine’s Love Mugs for Couples (Introductory Level)
Date: February 8, 2019 (Friday)
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Instructor: Trevor Novak
Fee: $60 (per couple)

We are offering a Couple’s workshop…just in time for Valentine’s Day! Come and make a mug with a loved one. Perhaps with your partner or even a friend or family member. Enjoy 1 glass of complimentary wine and some chocolates. 19+

This is an easy 2-hour class of guided instruction to help create your very own mug. It is beginner level with no previous experience required and you will use various clay hand-building techniques to craft a true one-of-a-kind piece of pottery.  All pieces will be dishwasher and microwave safe. The workshop fee includes all materials, clay, glazes and firing, tools and equipment. Seating is limited to 14.

Most work will be ready for pick up two weeks later. We’ll dry and fire your artwork in our kiln for you to take home approximately 14 days later and we will send you an email as soon as your mug has been fired and is ready to drink from!

Who is the Instructor?
Trevor Novak from Ontario is a maker of mainly sculptural ceramic objects. He is interested in narrative and myth and enjoys bringing stories to life with the figure. He often tackles grim and uncomfortable subject matter but is equally intrigued by humour and the lighter sides of life. Trevor is simply trying to figure out life in a world that he can’t even begin to comprehend.

Please note:

Kiln clay explosions are unlikely but they do happen. In the event of your art being damaged due to a kiln explosion, we are happy to provide emotional support and offer you a chance to come in and remake your clay art piece. Students are reminded to sign their work.  Otherwise, we cannot promise your work won’t be mixed up with someone else’s.

Skin Care:

Almost everybody suffers from dryness of skin after working with clay. Creams and lotions after working are recommended. Also wash your hands thoroughly when you are done.
