Serve It Up! Tureens, Bowls, Ladles & Spoon Rests
Thursdays , February 9 – April 6, 2023
9:30am – 1:00pm
In this class we will create a soup serving set! We will be using both wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques to design lidded serving crocks with functional handles, bowls, soup ladles, and spoon rests to complete the ensemble.
As a class we will look to donate a set to the Lunenburg School of the Arts bi-annual Bowl-O-Rama fundraiser in support of Second Story Women’s Centre.
