DIY Ceramic Pin Workshop


Try your hand at ceramics with Janet Hinkle of Hinkleville Handmade. This afternoon pin-making workshop will cover the basics of hand-building with clay. Participants will learn the necessary techniques to develop their own style and approach, adding colour and texture using various underglaze techniques. Take your #pingame to the next level! No previous experience required; great for all skill levels. We request that participants ages 10 to 14 attend with an adult.

Ages 18 and up: $51 ($60 for non-members) + HST
Ages 15 to 17: $51 ($60 for non-members)
Ages 10 to 14: $25 ($30 for non-members)
