This Art at Brucemore class is sold out. 

Embrace that festive feeling!

You’ve heard of “Elf on the Shelf,” now get ready for gnomes in your home! Brucemore is partnering with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio for a new ceramic project just in time for the holidays. Create your very own holiday gnome from clay using various hand-building techniques. When you finish sculpting your 4″x4″ gnome, give it a personality by painting it with festive seasonally colored glaze.

This workshop will occur at Brucemore. All projects will go back to the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass studio to be fired in their kiln. 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 for Santa to check his Naughty and Nice list!
