In addition to any officially scheduled workshop, you may schedule a two day workshop if you have 4 to 6 people interested in signing up. Usually workshops are scheduled for a couple of Sunday afternoons, two hours each day, one week apart. But more involved projects may take more time.
Some of the 2-day workshop projects we have done in the past: pumpkin jars, bowls, mugs, vases, lidded texture boxes, ornaments. More complicated projects like teapots or mold making require at least 4 classes. Contact me for workshop prices.
