October 2, 2016, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm




Get your hands in clay – use simple handbuilding methods to make a ceramic vessel for your favorite fermented beverage, and add a personal touch with texture and appliqué. This workshop is taking place along the Farm/Art DTour at The Byers Studio which is located in Rock Springs (approx. 7 miles from Reedsburg).

After the workshop, Win and Sandra will glaze and fire your cup for you and they will be available for pickup in Reedsburg or Madison from October 22  through to November 22, 2016.

This workshop is family friendly for kids aged 7 upwards (if accompanied by an adult).

Their work has been included in numerous books including The Best of Pottery and several of Lark Books 500 series. Their work is included in many museum collections including the Racine Art Museum, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, and the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY.
