Ceramic Birdhouse Father’s Day Workshop
Date: Sunday, June 20th
Levels: All levels and ages welcome
Price: $120 per table (6 tables are available – each table seats up to 6). Each table will create one birdhouse together. Price includes instruction, materials, clay, glazing and firing.
Teacher: Jacob Adivi
Description: Families will gather together under our mature oak tree and work collaboratively to create a beautiful birdhouse using slabs that can be textured and decorated to make a unique form. After the workshop, the Clay Studio team will glaze and fire your piece, which will be ready to pick up about two weeks after the workshop. The glazed, completed birdhouses can be featured in your garden or yard outside of your home.
About the Instructor: Since Jacob was eight-years-old, the malleability and plasticity of clay has served as his therapy. He applied his appreciation for art as an executive youth board member of the LA Museum of the Holocaust where he has curated exhibits and displayed his ceramic work. Through the museum, Jacob co-founded the non-profit L’Dough V’Dough, where intergenerational sessions focused on tolerance and storytelling are now held on college campuses across the U.S. Over the years, Jacob has enjoyed teaching hand building to children, wheel throwing to adults, and kick wheel skills to Ugandan college students. Aside from being an ardent potter, Jacob is a beekeeping enthusiast and passionate about the environment.
