Holiday Clay Ornaments

Start a new family tradition with handmade clay holiday ornaments! We'll create 3 or 4 different styles of ornaments perfect for any tree or great as a tag tie-on for gifts. No experience required. Just bring your creativity and holiday spirit. Ornaments will be glazed and fired by the instructor and ready for pick up before Thanksgiving. Cost is $35/person ($30 for BRAC members).

Mask Making

Looking for a fun new challenge? Join Wendy as we build unique clay masks! We will begin by creating simple hump molds which will give us the basic shape of our masks. Then, using coils and slabs, we will build up the features and any additional accents you'd like to add. Masks will be fired and delivered back to BRAC no later than December 17 and available for pick-up during regular gallery hours. You'll then be able to apply finishing touches to your mask on your own using paint, oil pastels, gold leaf, or any other method you'd like to try (we'll discuss some options during class). No experience required. Just bring your creativity. Cost is $50/person ($45 for BRAC Members)
