Ceramic Mug Making with Mud Witch

San Francisco, CA , United States

About Your Host

Jenny Lemons is a colorful, modern line of hand-painted & block printed women's clothing and home goods run by San Francisco-based artist, Jennie Lennick. Her retail store in the Mission District is a community space where she facilitates DIY workshops, produces her products, and showcases the talents of other local artists. All products offered are manufactured locally in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are passionate about teaching others to slow down and create things by hand. We love helping our students make items to beautify their homes and give as gifts while learning traditional craft techniques. All of our teachers are formally trained artists, and bring this perspective into their teaching- we encourage students to experiment, express themselves, and have fun!

What we'll do

In this class, you will learn basic hand building and slab building techniques central to mastering the art of ceramics. Students will be provided with one pre-made cup and will be guided by the instructor to make the funky-est handle you can muster up. You'll learn scraffito (scratching techniques), and will get the chance to play with colored slip to personalize your creations. Once your mug is complete, you will learn basic hand building techniques like pinching and slab building. Each student will receive one mug and will be able to make as many hand built pieces as they can fit on a 12 x 12 board. This 3-hour workshop includes clay and all other materials, snacks, beverages, and a 20% discount off of everything in our shop! Work will be fired after the workshop and will be available for pick-up within 3-4 weeks. Firing included in the cost of the class. About the Instructor: Viviana Matsuda is a maker and ceramicist running the company Mudwitch from San Francisco. Her goal in life is to learn to make everything.
