Dished Up Dessert: Make a Seashell Ice Cream Bowl at Museum of the American Revolution


Dec 9, 2018
02:00 PM until 04:00 PM


One scoop or two? Make a seashell ice cream bowl using Revolutionary techniques, in partnership with The Clay Studio! The design for these bowls is inspired by the nautical details on a rare pickle stand created by Bonnin and Morris, a 1770s local factory and the first American porcelain manufacturer. 

In this 90-minute workshop, you’ll use a shell form to create an ice cream bowl from start to finish, with blue and white porcelain glaze. During the 1770s, shell motifs were a popular design in America and Bonnin and Morris cast real shells to include on their works.
Please note: Bowls will be fired off-site at the Clay Studio and participants will be contacted within 2-4 weeks when their works are ready for pick-up. The Clay Studio is located at 139 N. 2nd Street in Philadelphia.
Be sure to wear clothes you're not afraid to get dirty!

This workshop is appropriate for adults and children ages 6 and older. Pre-registration is required as space is limited.


$25 for Adults, $20 for Youth, and $15 for Museum Members. Includes Museum admis
