Nature Trivet Workshop

The colors in your garden may have faded, but its beauty can live on. Preserve a piece of your garden (or River Farm’s) by creating a pair of ceramic trivets with impressions of flowers, leaves, stems, or seed pods. Heather Lezla of Persimmon Street Ceramics will demonstrate the process of hand-cut tile making from start to finish. Texturize and personalize your trivets with impressions of natural materials. Finally, choose from a selection of fall-inspired food safe glazes for finishing.

Heather will finish the process of firing and glazing your pieces in her home studio. Pieces will be returned to AHS two weeks later for pick up (or can be wrapped and shipped for a $10 fee). Your pair of 5 1/2 inch trivets will be ready for use as hot pads or decorative tiles.

The workshop will take place outdoors, under our spacious, airy tent. Each participant can be seated at his/her own 6ft. table to ensure safe distancing. All participants will be asked to wear masks to comply with the governor’s Forward Virginia guidelines.
