Ceramics for Gardeners: making birdhouses and other gifts

November 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Interested in creating hand-made gifts for the gardener in your life (or yourself!) this holiday season?

Then join us in the Bathhouse Ceramic Studio at the Braddock Carnegie Library to make bird houses, garden markers and other gifts out of clay! In this three-hour workshop, you will learn how to use clay slabs to make a simple birdhouse that you can decorate with carving, shingles, or any other designs you’d like. We will use the leftover slabs to cut out clay markers that can be stamped with the names of different plants commonly found in the garden. With any remaining time, workshop participants will learn how to make simple ornaments which make great gifts. Participants are encouraged to return to the studio during open hours to glaze their own work, or a staff member can glaze it for them.
