Wassail Clay Cup Workshop
in Collaboration with Western Cider
Sunday, January 5th, 6-9pm
$30 general admission, all ages
Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a participating adult.
Get ready for Western Cider’s Wassail celebration by creating an Old World clay cup using the pinch method in this informative workshop. Your cup will be fired and ready before the big party. Bring your clay cup to Wassail and get your first drink free!
This workshop is a part of Western Cider’s Wassail Workshop Series. On January 18th, Western Cider hosts their third WASSAIL, a traditional orchard-based celebration to raise the winter spirit of the community. The purpose of this ritual is to insure a bounty of apples for the coming season. In the spirit of participation, everyone is encouraged to attend the festivities in Old World costumes. The festivities will include costumed pageantry, theater, music, and drinking around fires in their outdoor cider garden. This is a unique event comparable to none.
The clay cups (or ‘clayen cups’) were traditionally used to scoop warm cider out of the ‘Wassail Cup’, which is the massive, ceremonial bowl that is integral to the celebration. It will all make sense when you’re there!
Tickets to the workshop are $30 and sell out quickly! Signup HERE or in Western Cider’s tasting room. For a full list of the Wassail Workshop Series, see Western Cider’s Facebook event page.
