POTTERY CLASS: Clay! - Make Your Own Mug

Each participant will make a mug using "slab method" and the slab roller. Using the slab technique we will incorporate layers of texture in the clay with a variety of objects and discuss forming the handle and attaching clay together by score-n-slip. 

This class is intended for those with no clay experience and would like to try it out and learn the process for making an excellent mug.Each participant will have their piece returned in 4-5 weeks (to be picked up at Monster) with a clear glaze over the white clay. 

Our address is 1716 NW Market Street, Seattle, WA 98107

Very rewarding!

I really enjoyed this class. Laura is a good teacher - *super* well organized with printed instructions, pre-cut/measured components, all the tools we needed close by. That helped us get the most out of our class time. She was super supportive of ideas that people brought to class and great at explaining stuff. I loved how my mug turned out. Recommend!

Super Fun Class

I had a grand time making a mug! Thanks to Monster for making it a fun night!

Very fun class!

Instructor was super patient with this slower-than-the-others student (me), resulting in my very unique mug. So fun to see the variety of ways other students decorated their mugs. Highly recommend! As another reviewer mentioned, an extra 15 minutes beyond "official" class end would be nice and was all I needed to finish my mug. Instructor was still cleaning up so it was not a problem for me to stay.

The class was overall good, could have maybe used ~15m more for the class time. I don't think I have seen anything about when I will be able to pick up the final fired mug.

A perfect way to spend an evening-and you get a thing to take home!

It was a lot of fun experimenting with different tools and glaze prints. I love my mug!
