Ceramics 101: Whiskey, Espresso & Tequila Copitas

  • Broad Studios 1023 Springdale Road, Unit 6D Austin, TX, 78721 United States (map)


Taught by Kara Pendl of KARACOTTA!

Do you love whiskey, espresso or tequila?

Are you curious about the wild world of ceramics? Do you want to gift someone the best house-warming present ever? If you're shouting "YES," the grab a spot in this beginner-friendly workshop! You can expect to quickly learn the basic fundamentals of ceramics and then we will start with a no-experience-needed pinch pot technique!  

Each person will make a set of four copitas, that can be used for whiskey, espresso, tequila or your beverage of choice. If time allows, you can also make a matching serving tray to go with your copitas. We will wrap up class by decorating and glazing our pieces through several technique options. 

To complete your pieces, Kara will kiln fire them and you will be able to pick them up from Broad Studios two-three weeks after class.
