Here are the little clay dwellings that were made at our fairy house workshop. We took them from the kiln a few days ago. They are so adorable, each one!. I am quite certain that any fairy, gnome, or traveling wood nymphs searching for a place to reside would love one of these handcrafted homes. We’ll be offering this class again in the spring. If you’d like to add a little whimsy to your garden next season, consider taking this class!
If you’d like to join us for an afternoon of building fairy houses on August 11th and August 25th, we still have a few spots open. Hannah has been busy buying clay, sorting through her pottery tools, and mixing glazes. If interested, check out our ‘classes and more’ page and call or email to hold your spot! We’re looking forward to seeing how creative we can make our tiny homes!
Fairy House Building – a two session pottery class
Thursday, August 11th and Thursday, August 25th, from 1:00 to 3: 00
Check out our classes and more page for details
Join ceramicist and WWOOFer Hannah Medovnikov and Denise Sawyer in a two-part pottery class building miniature homes for your resident garden gnomes or fairies. During the first session, participants will design and construct their fairy homes using clay and considering features to be embellished after firing. After the houses are dry, we will fire them and bring them back to be glazed during the second session. We’ll discuss ways to add ‘features’ to your fairy house….doors, shutters, and even a ‘living’ roof ! After the glaze firing your pieces will be ready for installation! We will be using slab building and pinching techniques to make miniature shelters, perfect for any ‘little folks’ who may be wandering your woodland or gardens. Along with guidance from Hannah on how to build and design out of clay, Denise will discuss how to best design around your new piece of mini real estate. Materials and supplies are included…..plus, as with most all classes here at Fernwood, tea and scones will be served!
