January 2014 Workshops

Ingrid King, Stone Leaf Pottery Owner & Studio Manager will be teaching 2 great workshops in January.

Cone 5 Majolica on Saturday, January 25


Press Molded Birdhouses on Sunday, January 26

Cone 5 Majolica Class

Saturday, January 25 from 10 am to approximately 1 pm. COST $35*

If you love the vibrant look of majolica but can’t quite decide how to proceed, join us for this class to learn more about majolica products & options for Cone 5. Several techniques and tips to enhance your knowledge of how to glaze with majolica will be presented. Bring your ideas, sketches, magazine, and other inspirations. If you don’t have a lot of ideas yet – consider looking at calendars, greeting cards, and of course – our boards on Pinterest!

Class participants should bring 1 -2 bisqued items, already coated with their majolica base of choice. Also bring to class your favorite decorating brushes. If you have to stop at Stone Leaf prior to the workshop for your majolica base, we’d strongly suggest Spectrum 1019, Majolica Base  OR Laguna MS 301, White Versa OR Amaco HF 11, White.

*Fee includes (limited) majolica decorative glaze products & supplies during class but does not including firing fees or storage. No refunds.


Press Molded Bird Houses

Sunday, January 25 from 1:30 to 4:30pm Cost: $35*

Join Ingrid in Stone Leaf’s studio for one of her favorite activities – press molding! During this 3 hour class, students will be able to make one press molded bird house, similar to the one shown in the picture here. If you have never press molded, this is a great way to start. Press molding clay into a pre-made mold is a simple and easy way to achieve great results each time!

Ingrid will be continuing with more press molding classes this year, including an Elaborate Press Molding class in February. Class participants should bring 2 bisque fired pots to class – one for the house & one for the lid. A light buff stoneware clay will be provided during the workshop for this project.

Fees & Refunds: Both workshops discussed here are $35 each. This fee does not include any storage or firing of items created in the workshop. Firing can be arranged for an additional fee. Stone Leaf does not offer any refunds on workshops, unless we cancel them. If you purchased a workshop and are unable to attend you are welcome to sell or give your place to a friend.
