BOOK by selecting your location from the drop-downs below

Gathering at the studio for a 4Cats holiday workshop is a wonderful and inspiring way for friends and family to spend time together.

Introducing our 4Cats Traditional Trim the Tree Workshop!

These ornaments are tree-mendous! Each person makes up to 2 kiln-fired ornaments from scratch. Perfect for trimming the tree, decking the halls, or surprising someone with a thoughtful handmade gift!

The Good News: These lovely terracotta clay creations will not require an extra visit to the studio for glazing. They will be created in one sitting.

After a 15 minute demonstration from one of our talented and lovely curators, families and friends will enjoy an hour or so creating their unique gingerbread ornaments in the lovely little studio.

We will then kiln fire your ornaments, they should be ready within a week or two for pick up. We will send you an email when they are ready to take home.

After your instructor demonstrates hand-building clay techniques, using earthenware slabs of clay you will form and design your ornaments from scratch.

Our focus is on supporting artists well providing a place to socialize and connect with friends, family, and your fellow artists. 

The tradition of pottery making is really important to us. You, the artist, handbuild your unique clay piece from scratch at our studios. We focus on the process of making pottery, which takes time. In our clay workshops, we do not paint on a pre-designed, factory-made, ceramic molds.
