A workshop and family picnic hosted by Eikcam Ceramics

1 day / 1.5 hours

Sat. June 2 + 9 + 16 / 10-11:30AM

Welcome to our first family workshop for kids and grown ups alike! We combine our hand building clay practice, and celebrate your creative creations over a shared picnic with you and your littles. (We are requesting a related adult to accompany littles for the duration of the course. You may make alongside your child or enjoy tea in our back area).

It will take place over 3 consecutive Saturdays or Sundays, where you & your little ones will be guided through the creation of some ceramic wares. On the last day, we will serve a picnic of finger sandwiches, veggie + fruit, cheese & nuts, and a little Japanese Mochi treat.

To register via email, please send your full name, workshop title, workshop time/date, and an e-transfer of the full cost to objecthandmadestudio@gmail.com. We will confirm receipt within 24 hours.

In the first session, we will go over design, preparation of the clay, and then spend some time forming your small vessels and plates. We'll offer you some basic techniques and design options in creating simple pieces that will serve your picnic.

By the second session, your wares will be fired to a bisqued state, which means they are ready for glazing! We have a range of options for glazing, and you're welcome to approach with a minimalist eye, or with every colour of the rainbow. Once you're finished, we'll glaze fire your pieces, which will cure your wares making them food safe.

In the third and final session, your beautiful wares will be fired and ready to filled. We will present your wares in your picnic spread to be enjoyed with your fellow makers.

Please let us know of any food allergies you have. We are handling nuts and dairy, so please do not take part if you are allergic. Everything will be prepared naturally gluten free.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

Eikcam Ceramics is a home decor collection, designed and handmade by Vancouver artist/designer, Grace Lee. Most of Grace's work lends a sense of naturalness and whimsy, which serve as functional pieces for the table or home.

The artist's approach to design remains a kind of layered simplicity. She often combines different textures with hues and colours to complement the form, shape, and functionality of the piece.
