An upcoming Bonifas Arts Center class will offer the chance to make personalized Mother’s Day gifts at a hand-glazed pottery class May 6 at 10 a.m.
EVENT: Mother’s Day Pottery Glazing
Participants will select a pre-made piece of pottery, such as a coffee mug, glass, or vase, and then use paintbrushes and glazes to create designs. Instructor Vicki Shirley, local pottery artist, will demonstrate techniques, present ideas to help inspire, and offer guidance as needed.
The creations must be fired in the kiln after the class, but participants will be able to pick up gifts in time to give them on Mother’s Day, said Shirley.
Youths age 10 and older, as well as adults, are welcome. The class is $25 for nonmembers and $20 for Bonifas members, which covers the cost of one pre-made pottery piece, and participants can opt to purchase a second piece of pottery for an additional fee.
