Spend time making work, learning from Molly and getting away from it all with one of Molly’s in-person workshops!

Molly’s in-person workshops explore ways to approach surface decoration and its relationship to form in your ceramics. Molly typically begins by walking through basic surface design concepts and discusses ways to find your muse and harness inspiration. Learn how to source and translate 2-D patterns and images into both surface decoration and form. In addition to basic hard-slab construction, Molly’s workshops focus on learning a wide range of surface techniques on greenware and bisque ware that can be applied to most any ceramic surface.

Molly also teaches workshops in professional practices, drawing, painting and surface design. Please be in touch if you are interested in having Molly come teach near you!


“Molly was FABULOUS – so knowledagble regarding all possible nuances of each technique we covered…Although well-known for a particular style of ceramics, students were encouraged to create work with their personal visions and not just copy the motifs that are so emblematic of her style. [Molly] was really encouraging, positive, and enthusiastic…It has been an honor to be ia student of someone so devoted to her craft and truly in love with ceramic art.”
-Snow Farm workshop student

“I learned so much based on [not only] the technical and aesthetic aspects of the teqchniques themselves, but also how they could be incorporated into each stuent’s individual stylistic preferences.”

“[Molly] was very knowledgable, stimulating and fun!”

Molly Hatch - A Passion for China: History and Surface

Using the ceramic collections as inspiration, join us for this one-day, hands-on workshop with ceramic artist, designer and author Molly Hatch.

Molly Hatch will use her new book 'A Passion for China' to share stories behind the ceramic objects we live with, eat from and love and as a platform for ways to consider the ceramic surface. Through demonstrated and hands-on learning, Hatch will share multiple techniques for reinterpreting history on the ceramic surface. Learn how to apply a pressure transfer onto fired and unfired clay, traditional inlay, painting on clay as well as ways to think through integrating surface and form. You'll come away with new and exciting ways to approach the ceramic surface.
