Do you want to create your own dishware, but feel daunted by the process of learning how to throw clay? Learn to create a ceramic bowl with Lyn Reed. This class consists of two sessions, first creating a bowl using hand building techniques. Lyn will give you tips for how to best shape your bowl. In between sessions, your new bowl will be bisque-fired. It will now be ready for glazing! At the second session, you will play with a variety of glazes and decorate your bowl to your pleasing. Your bowl may be collected the following week after it has been fired for the final time. All bowls made will be dishwasher and microwave safe.  

What an accomplishment!  To make a bowl out of clay, decorate it, glaze it, and then be able to eat anything you like, soup, cereal or ice cream out of it. Don’t miss this fun opportunity! No experience required.

After combining processes from ancient peoples and drawing inspiration from nature and her own life experiences, she tries to make each pot a unique form.
