Connect with other older adults during this 6 session class.  Instructors will guide participants through the basics of hand-building pottery techniques including clay preparation, treatment, and glazing. Students will each complete a custom place setting including plate, bowl, cup, and accessories. During the last class session, participants are invited to contribute to a community meal to use their place settings, sharing conversation about the role of food and meal times in family and cultural traditions.

This class is made possible because of funding from the Lifelong Arts grant from the Indiana Arts Commission. Because of this, participation is limited to individuals 65 and older. Older adults may be accompanied by a younger relative or caregiver through the registration of two participants. This class is led by Tammeron & Anna Francis, a husband and wife team from ClayWood Ceramics.

 

*All of our workshops and classes are led by professional makers, artists, entrepreneurs, educators and community partners. We strive to provide high-quality and unique learning experiences. Registration will close up to 72 hours prior to the start of the event to provide time for instructors to prepare.

*Note, registrations and email reminders will be processed through SimpleTix. For multi-session workshops, only the first class meeting will appear on your ticket.

*Special thanks to our grant funders and donors who make our workshops financially accessible. Scholarships are available for individuals and families with a demonstrated need. Email kyra@madjax.org for more info.
