Corporate Clay Workshops

 

CORPORATE CLAY WORKSHOPS AT MUDFLAT

Mudflat offers workshops for small groups of co-workers for team-building and creativity. Workshops can be scheduled for daytime, Friday evenings or weekends for up to 15 adults, focusing on basic wheelthrowing or handbuilding techniques.

How the Workshop Works: A Mudflat teacher will demonstrate how to make a pot on the pottery wheel (wheelthrowing workshop) or how to use slabs and coils to make functional or sculptural work (handbuilding workshop). Participants will work at their own pottery wheel or table space, with instruction and assistance from the teacher. Each participant will select a glaze color so their best effort can be glazed and fired. After the workshop, the Mudflat teacher will dry and trim the pieces. Pieces are first bisque fired, then glaze is applied, then they are fired again. The whole process takes 4-5 weeks. We will wrap up and box all of the pieces for your group and notify the contact person when they are ready for pick-up, approximately one month after the workshop. All pieces are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.
