Art at Brucemore: Ceramic Holiday Tree

November 19, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Sold out!Ticket

The Ceramic Holiday Tree workshop is sold out!

Embrace the sparkle of the season!

The holiday season is upon us, and Brucemore is partnering with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio to bring a new holiday workshop to Brucemore.

Roll up your sleeves and create a magical holiday tree! Form your tree using hand-building techniques and then use scissors and other tools to create the boughs and branches. Finally, paint on colored glaze and add decorations to your tree to create depth to your project. All materials and instructions are provided, and no experience is necessary to participate!

Participants will craft and glaze their trees at Brucemore. All projects will go back to the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass studio for firing in their kilns. Brucemore will notify participants when their creations are ready for pick-up from the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio approximately three weeks following the class date, just in time to add presents under the tree!

Please register by November 16 at 5:00 PM to reserve your spot.
