Handmade Holiday: Transferware with Mary Emery Lacoursiere

Its holiday time and there’s nothing better than handmade gifts.

Choose from a selection mugs, platters, and bowls to make a pair of unique custom ceramics.  Use historic imagery, text, and whimsy  to compose your pieces that will then be fired in a kiln, making them food and dishwasher safe.

Still trying to fill your gift list?  No problem.  Add an extra mug platter or small dish for an nominal charge.

Class will be held in the Discovery Center at the Whaling Museum.  Wearing a mask and safely distanced we will be while we have a bit of joy at the same time.

 

Maximum class size: 8
