You are guaranteed to have a fantastic time in this ceramics class! Becky Zee will teach you the basics of pinch pot construction and how to add eyes, teeth, horns, hair, legs or whatever else you want. When you are happy with your new little critter, you’ll be able to finish him up with colorful clay paints and a zany personality, all in one sitting! All skill levels are welcome. Kids are welcome with an adult present (must be at least 10 yrs. old). All creations will be given a waterproof clear glaze and fired off-site. Finished pots will be brought back to MBG for pickup 2 weeks after the class. Class fee includes all supplies and tools needed to bring your critter to life. All you need to bring is your imagination and a mask (and please wear your play clothes). class size will be limited to maintain social distancing. 901-636-4128 to register by April 6th. $40 MBG members/$50 non-members.
