Beer Mug Making at King Street Brewery
Sunday September 17th or 31st
from 5pm to 8pm

Need a bigger beer vessel? Well just make one silly! We will be hosting a beer stein making night at the locally owned King Street Brewery in Anchorage. This is no amature stein it will be six inches high and three inches wide.  
Catered snacks will be provided as well as a possible food truck on site.

Tickets are discounted as there are three left at $65 with supplies, firing, and glazing. To purchase tickets go to our website and click on the special events page. Once you purchase your ticket your spot is reserved!

Students will be able to use tools that we provide including molds, texture stamps, and scultping equipment to make a beer container fit for a king or queen.

Purchase tickets on our website. We only have room for 15 students in this class over the age of 21 as adult beverages are allowed while participating in this class. They must be purchased from the venue.

At the end of this class students will choose a glaze sample color and within two to three weeks will recieve a call or email to come to the studio to pick up their stein which has been glazed and fired by studio staff.

We ask that students who sign up for this class please remember that pottery can be tricky and as a result may not turn out the way that you would like. All students must sign a waiver and class agreement upon the night of the event which goes over our refund policy.

In a nut shell we do not refund for items that do not make it through the firing process, we of course want the projects to turn out, however much of it is out of our control. Please keep in mind the studio supports process over product. By taking this class you are learning a skill and learning about the craft.

Thank you for supporting the arts!
Family Hand Casting 
Friday November 10th
from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Come make the perfect gift for a parent or loved one. These casts are strong and elegant. Skip the mess at home and come to our studio to cast your hands! We have all the supplies and expertise to help you. Within an hour you will be able to make a mold of a beautiful piece of time trapped in stone.

This class is for ages 6 and up.

Stundents must hold hands still for up to ten minutes. This material is safe to the skin however if you have a skin condition please let us know ahead of time. We may have to apply a layer of vasaline or jelly to the surface of the skin to be sure that the mold will not break when hands are pulled out.

Not all projects are successful, it is all dependent on wether students can remain still and accurately follow the directions when the gel is setting. We do not offer a refund for projects that do not turn out but of course we want each student to leave with an item and make be able to mend or remake items. 

Students will leave and the studio will be pouring the plaster to set overnight. The finished project will be ready within one business week. 

If you have any questions please feel free to send us a message.

Couples Night Casting 

Friday November 17th 

from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Come in and get a couples hand casting. This is a great way to remember and will last a long time. The picture to the left is a cast that was made in the studio. 

Students will be using a skin safe gel to cast their hands. They will leave their cast with the studio and overnight the studio will pour the mold and let it set. We will sand and clean up any rough edges. The mold will take ten to eight minutes to  set so be sure to sit still. 

This is also a great opportunity for a parent and a child to come in and get their hands molded as a great Christmas gift!  The minimum age for this is six, we just have to be sure the children can sit still while the mold sets. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to send us a message there is a link to do so on the bottom of every page of our website. 

This class is $75 with supplies. Please purchase below to reserve your spot.
