In this in-depth two day class students will learn to build and glaze their very own hand built mug. In the first class, students will have plenty of one-on-one instruction and tips for constructing a functional slab-built mug. There will be a variety of texture mats, stamps, and underglazes to help make your mug just as unique as you are. In the second class, students will be able to choose their own glazes from a variety of colors and finishes to complete their project all on their own.
