    Face Jug Clay Workshop with Linda Huey

    Members: $25, Not-Yet-Members: $45
    Advance reservations are required by 5:00 p.m. on April 6th.

    This workshop is SOLD OUT.  Please check back soon to register for our June class.

    A face jug is a ceramic vessel with traditions dating back as early as the 14th century.  The most well-known vessels came from North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, and were made by African-American slaves during the mid-1800s. Many scholars believe they had both practical and spiritual significance.

    During the workshop, participants will start with a simple cylinder of clay wrapped around a support form, and then add their own creative face details using coils and shapes of clay. Individuals are encouraged to be creative, and will have the opportunity construct a face of their choice. When the support form is taken out, the clay jug can be altered by pushing out from the inside, and finishing the rim. The jugs will be made of a rich, brown clay that will look great without using a glaze. This will be a one-day workshop and jugs will be available for pickup at a later date.
