SATURDAY AUGUST 5


FAMILY POTTERY WORKSHOP | 12:00 PM | STUDIO 550

This is most appropriate for kids 9 and up, but younger children (6 is the youngest) who have the focus and dexterity are welcome as well. Throwing on the pottery wheel is not the easiest thing to learn, so parents are advised that they may need to assist their children. If you have a younger child, try the Family Clay Workshop from 1:30-2:30 on Saturdays, where we sculpt with clay without using the pottery wheel. Instead of being limited to the wheel, your child can sculpt a dragon, ornaments, a crazy fish, or… anything, really. It is much easier for younger children to work with clay without a wheel.

About the workshop:
Parent and child will each get their own wheels. The class begins with a quick demonstration, participants then get to throw on the pottery wheel, and the last 10-15 minutes is reserved for clean up. Because we are limited to 8 participants in a class and because throwing on the wheel is more involved than clay sculpting, there is a limit of one child per parent.

This class is held monthly from 12-1PM on the First Saturday of each month. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to allow for check in, get aprons on and get situated for the demo to start at noon. The sooner we get settled, the more time you will have to throw on the wheel!

CLAY WORKSHOP | 1:30 PM OR 3:00 PM | STUDIO 550

This is not a wheel-throwing class. If you are interested in wheel throwing with your child, please reserve a spot in our “Family Pottery Workshop” (every first Saturday from 12-1) or the “Try it! Clay Workshop from 3-6” (every Saturday). Wheel throwing tends to be more appropriate for kids 9+

Come in Saturday afternoon 1:30-2:30 with your kid (or a couple of kids) to share the magic of clay together. You will each get to hand-sculpt a clay project from scratch. Kids of all ages are welcome, but if your child is 5 or under, you may spend a bulk of the workshop helping your child sculpt their piece. There is no defined lesson plan, as clay leaves a lot of room for creativity! No worries if you don’t know what to make. If you are stumped, the teacher will have projects to suggest. If you know what you want to make, the teacher will help guide you.

Leave your creations with us to fire and we will let you know when they are ready to pick up. Please allow 3-4 weeks for completion.

The first parent and child pair is $30. For each additional parent or child it is $10. The class is open to younger children that would not normally take a class alone (ages 4-6), but parents accompanying these ages should be prepared to work mostly with their child to make a project together. Parents of older children (7-14) can make their own pieces.

Price includes all materials, instruction, and finishing of work. Pre-registration is encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome if there is room in the workshop.

Sample projects:
Mini-Coil Bud vases
Crazy Creature Box
Slab built Mugs
Pinch Pot Bowls
Coil Bowls
A tunnel for your pet lizard to sleep in
Fancy Fish Sculptures
Textured Trivets
Ornaments or wind chimes

STAINED GLASS WORKSHOP | 3:00 PM | STUDIO 550

This one-day workshop is designed to let people get a feel for the basic steps of working with stained glass. It is perfect for people who are only in town for a day, or who want to try a class out with us to see if they will like it before they sign up for a 10-week full length course. We host this workshop Saturdays from 3-6 PM.

Please call or email in advance to make sure the workshop is still running on the weekend you would like to sign up as the teacher is sometimes away for craft shows.

Students will learn the basic ways of working with stained glass: cutting, applying copper foil, and soldering. Each participant will make a project to take home.

FIGURE DRAWING WORKSHOP | 6:00 PM | STUDIO 550

A workshop with a live nude model held once per month on Saturday from 6-8PM. Please send an email to info@550arts.com be added to the contact list for this workshop and we will reach out each month to announce the following few workshops.

The model will begin with short gestural poses and work up to longer poses towards the end of the session. We will make every effort to alternate male/female models each month. The workshop is not instructed and is open format. Beginners are welcome! Artists may use a media of their choice (drawing, painting, sculpting, etc.). There are some easels in the studio artists are welcome to use, but they are limited, so please arrive early if you hope to use one.

Interested students are asked to register in advance. If the week of the workshop there are less than 4 registrants, we will cancel the workshop. Unfortunately, we can’t give refunds for missed figure workshops, because we decide to host them or not based on pre-registrants. If we cancel the workshop due to weather or lack of registrants, your registration will be refunded or credited to another month.

DISCLAIMER: There will be a nude model. The workshop is recommended for mature or adult audiences. The purpose of this workshop is for artistic practice and study. Inappropriate visitors or inappropriate uses will not be tolerated and those guests will be asked to leave. They will not be welcome back in the space.
