Embrace your wild side!

Brucemore is partnering with the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio to bring a wild workshop to Art at Brucemore, just in time for Theatre Cedar Rapids' production of Madagascar: A Musical Adventure at Brucemore! In this class, you will sculpt a trinket bowl inspired by the characters of  Madagascar - a lion, a zebra, a hippo, or a giraffe. These trinket bowls are good for holding all sorts of items, including candy, keys, loose change, or even a succulent. When you are finished with your project, remember to "Move it, move it!" over to Theatre Cedar Rapids website to purchase tickets to see Madagascar: A Musical Adventure, showing at Brucemore from July 7-23, 2023.

This workshop is hosted in the Brucemore Carriage House. All instructions and materials are provided during the workshop. Following the workshop, the instructor will take the projects to the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio for firing in their kiln. Brucemore will notify participants when their creations are ready for pick-up from the Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio, approximately three weeks following the class date.
