Title: Folk School PreView: “Glazed Stoneware Mug”
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 small charcuterie box of meats, cheeses, and other items will be served in class and this is included in the ticket price. 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 email@example.com.
Description: Come join us for a relaxing class painting a 16 ounce Stoneware mug! This will be a glazing session where you will learn how colors layer together. We will then fire it so it will be food and microwave safe. It will be ready for pick-up approximately 2 weeks after the class.
