June 28 and 29: Ephraim Glazing and Sculpting Workshops + Studio Tours – Lake Mills

Join us June 28th or 29th in our studio in Lake Mills, Wisconsin for a Glazing or Sculpting Workshop, or both! Ephraim glazer, Jennifer Alexander, will guide students through the glazing application process. Students will use Ephraim-designed glazes and complete a flower-themed or leaf-themed vase with their desired color scheme, using a variety of glazing techniques learned in the workshop. Owner and artist Kevin Hicks will teach you how to sculpt decoration onto a hand-thrown form. Once you have completed your sculpture work, we will bisque fire your piece and then one of our glazers will finish your piece in a single glaze of your choice from a selection of Ephraim’s exclusive custom glazes. Learn more and register for our workshops at, in our galleries or by calling 910.648.5269.

Join us June 29th between 1 and 3 pm for an Ephraim Pottery studio tour. Walk through our workshop while artists turn, glaze, and sculpt – they will share stories about our creative process, the technology that supports us, and our day-to-day workflows. Tours are free, but space is limited. Call 920.648.3534 or email to reserve your spot.
