A Return To Old Friends: Four Hundred Years of Ceramics in America
After two years away, we gather again at Historic Eastfield to revisit old friends and meet new ones. We’ll reexamine the earliest ceramics at Jamestown, the world of imports that filled homes with the most fashionable ceramics in the eighteenth century, and early stoneware in New York and New Jersey. Using a host of historic and modern resources, archaeology, and experimentation, we’ll go down the rabbit hole of more than four hundred years of ceramics in America. Two hands-on workshops are included, as is lunch both days and a period dinner at the Briggs Tavern on Saturday.
Please note this class runs approximately from 9AM - 5PM. (Subject to Instructor Discretion)
