Pewabic Pottery Family Fun Day

Posted by Lisa LaGrou August 11, 2014 Events, Local Activities

Pewabic Pottery in Detroit invites children and families to embark on an artistic adventure during their annual Family Fun Day Tuesday, August 12, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

Pewabic Pottery Family Fun Day is free! Guests can get their hands dirty with a variety of “Make-and-Take” activities including stringing ceramic beads, painting flower pots and decorating ceramic bells to ring in the school year.

This is a time when there are free tours of the pottery throughout the day. Visitors are able to take guided tours through the fabrication studio in which they see how Pewabic iconic pieces are produced in bulk by local artisans. Pewabic education studio provides demonstrations in a variety of techniques in our courtyard and attendees have an opportunity to play with clay, take a spin on the wheel, and try their hand at other creative ceramic practices. It truly is a festival to celebrate our target audience – families, friends and people of all ages.  In addition to many free hands on activities including games and face painting, we also have a small number of nominally priced workshops in which participants may sculpt and glaze their own piece. These are then fired and participants are able to pick them up a few weeks later.

A day full of activities for the family including free tours, live demos and workshops. Some activities will have a nominal fee of $5. Pewabic artists also will be demonstrating the magic of clay wheel throwing, and giving free tours of the pottery.

No registration is required for Family Fun Day, however, groups of 10 or more are asked to call (313) 626-2000 in advance. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Pewabic Pottery is a non-profit arts and cultural organization and National Historic Landmark which is dedicated to engaging people of all ages in learning experiences with contemporary ceramic art and artists while preserving its historic legacy.
