Tableware is not limited to plates, bowls and serving dishes. Think about your table setting: serving utensils, drinking vessels, pitchers, vases, a butter dish, salt/pepper shakers, and candlesticks. Is this tableware casual, formal? Is it a particular person’s table? (Van Gogh’s, Hemmingway’s, Frida Kahlo’s, Queen Elizabeth, Elton John or Lady Gaga’s) or is it for a specific holiday (Valentine’s Day, Easter, Passover, Independence Day, Halloween, Christmas, or Chanukah)? Look at images of table settings and make a list of items you like to make with sketches. Brief discussion of the rituals of dinner and pieces you would like to make and how you would like to construct them.  There will be demonstrations on making serving utensils, goblets, and candlesticks.
