Ceramic Workshop: Pet Bowls with Central Ceramics Co.

Sunday February 18th from 11am-2pm & Sunday February 25th from 11am-1pm

Beginner Level Class - Must be 16 or older (minors with supervision).

Your pets deserve a handcrafted treasure made with love! Join local artist, Mitch Segall, as he walks you through making a ceramic water bowl from scratch.

During this two-part 6 1/2 hour workshop, you’ll learn all about handbuilding and glazing porcelain. By the end of class, you’ll understand how to properly drape and build clay so that the resulting piece is structurally sound. You'll also learn how to imprint textures and add shapes to create something entirely unique.

When you return for the second date, you'll learn how to apply glaze to your bisqued bowl using a variety of glazing techniques. 

Everyone will walk away with a custom water bowl (roughly 16oz, 32oz, or 48 oz) for their favorite furry friend. Please note, your bowl will be ready for pick up 2 weeks after class, when the kiln firing is complete.

About the Instructor:

My name is Mitch Segall and I’m the founder of Central Ceramics Co. I’ve been working with clay for nearly 20 years, since I took my first ceramics course in high school. Since then I’ve worked and apprenticed in a number of studios and have over 10 years of experience teaching pottery. I love exploring shape, texture, and color and the ways in which I can stretch their limitations with clay. Currently, my work reflects the aesthetics that have inspired me during my life in the central USA and while living in Central America.
