Holiday Traditions Luminary

Create a cherished family heirloom that will bring light and joy to the holiday season in this intro level ceramics workshop! Starting with a porcelain pine tree shape, students will create a variety of small holiday symbols to be attached to the tree and painted with colorful underglazes. Choose symbols that are special and significant to you, such as a Tomte, Lucia buns, woven hearts, mittens, and other cozy holiday characters or objects. By using templates and molds, students will be able to fully decorate their luminary, which will emit a cozy light in your home once finished.

A $40 materials fee covers all materials including a LED light. After class, the luminaries will be bisque fired in the instructor’s studio, then glazed and fired a final time. They will be returned to ASI for students to pick up later in mid-November, just in time for the Christmas season. Suitable for all levels, ages 14+.
