Clay Holiday Ornaments (kiln fired) – Family Workshop

Date and time: December 5; 3-5 pm
Registration deadline: December 2

Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, or Christmas, children and adults can explore the fun of creating with clay! Beginning with a simple round clay slab, the instructor will teach you all the tricks to creating unique clay ornaments for hanging, displaying, or giving as gifts. Projects will be fired in the kiln and available for pickup in approximately two weeks.

Registration price includes all materials and kiln firings for 2-3 ornaments each.

Jessica Vitale resides in Traverse City and teaches high school Spanish, media publications, and art at Suttons Bay Public Schools. Her artistic background concentrates on ceramic functional and non-functional work and mosaic design using recycled credit cards, gift cards, and hotel key cards. Her mosaic work focuses on the realities and hardships of achieving the “American dream.” She loves incorporating other themes in her career, such as nature, balance, and awareness of mental and social issues.

Minimum Enrollment: Glen Arbor Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class or multi-day, sequential-day workshop that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by GAAC for lack of enrollment, GAAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid (Cash payments will be refunded by check).
