"Toad House for the Garden"
This workshop involves creating a toad house out of slabs of clay. The options for creativity are limitless. It's a quick, fun project that will be a wonderful addition for a garden.
Here are some unfired pieces created in Elsa's Monday Night Kid's class. Aren't they great?
Contact Elsa at email@example.com if interested in attending this workshop.
Hope to see you there!

"Create-Your-Own Mosaic Project"
Our March workshop is coming up fast! This time you will have an opportunity to create your own mosaic project, whether it be making a table top creation or mosaicing the outside of a planter. You choose what you'd like to do and bring the foundation piece to which the tiles will be added. On the first night we meet (March 22, 6:30-8:30pm), individuals will be able to lay out their designs and glaze their own tiles which will be pre-fired, multiple shapes and sizes to choose from. The following two meetings can be made up on Monday or Thursday evenings (depending on your schedule) between 6 and 8pm. The second night you'll glue tiles to foundation piece and on the final night, grout your piece.
Fee for class: $50 ($45 if you bring a friend)

Just wanted to let you know we've put a date on the calendar for our next handbuilding workshop at Splatters. This time we'll be making our own tiles from clay to create a landscape mosaic, glazed, glued and grouted on a board with a handmade clay frame. It will be a wonderful piece to hang on the wall.
The first meeting will be held February 2 (Thursday) from 6:30-8:30 pm. We'll have to meet another time to complete the project, TBD (possibly two times depending on how the glazing and firing process goes). The fee for the workshop is $65 which includes all meeting dates and supplies. $5 off for anyone who brings a friend!
