Transferware Holiday! with Mary Emery Lacoursiere

Its holiday time and there’s nothing better than handmade gifts.  Join us for a glass of wine and a light refreshment while we create together.

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.

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.

Materials, beverages and light refreshment included.

Maximum class size: 8
