Title: Folk School PreView: “Glaze a Ceramic Wine Cup”

Join us for an evening of fun and folklife at our Folk School PreView! Held once a month during Burritt’s “Cocktails on the View” students will participate in a two hour introductory class taught by a Folk School instructor and enjoy cocktails and appetizers while creating their own project. Arrive at 5:00 pm and visit The View to purchase a drink and see the Huntsville skyline from Burritt’s 3000 square foot overlook. The class will begin at 5:30 and end by 7:30 giving you another thirty minutes to enjoy The View after class ends. A $12 charcuterie box is included with each ticket and will be served in class. These “previews” of our Folk School are perfect for socializing with friends or date night. Have a group of 6 or more and interested in a private event? Email jana.parris@huntsvilleal.gov. 

Description:  Join us for a two hour class to glaze a ceramic wine cup handcrafted in Burritt’s own pottery studio by local artist and instructor, Jessica Johnson. Choose from a variety of glaze colors and textures to apply to your cup and learn the steps of glazing a ceramic work of art.  Please note: Cups will have to be fired in our kiln after glazing. They will be available for pick-up in the studio on Saturday, August 27th or Sunday, August 28th between the hours of 1:00 and 3:00 pm. You may also choose to purchase a shipping ticket below to have it shipped to your home.
