Ceramics at the Castle
Join us for a beginner clay workshop! We will be hand making a coffee pour over cone AND mug! You will learn the basics of working with clay, slab construction, and texturing clay. Adriana Lemus and Chad Franco from Night Owl Pottery will guide you through this 3-hour workshop.
The $75 fee includes white clay, all materials to use during the workshop, instruction by experienced ceramic artists, and a glass of wine! Once cone and mug are created, you will leave it with the instructors where they will take it back to their studio in San Luis Obispo to be fired, glazed (painted), and fired a second time. This process takes about 4-5 weeks. When complete, the mugs will be brought back to T&N to be picked up!
Night Owl Pottery is a combination and collaboration of ceramic work by artist Adriana Lemus and natural builder Chad Franco. They create almost all of their pottery at night—thus, Night Owl Pottery. Both artists are from the Central Coast and come from artist families. Adriana Lemus studied art at UC Berkeley and has been showing her work on the Central Coast and in the Bay area for the past five years. Chad Franco studied natural building and permaculture design in Santa Cruz, Texas, and Portugal, this led to organizing his own workshops and commission work within the community. Both artists sell their work at local Makers Markets, online, and are currently working on commission work for restaurants, hotels, spas, and homes.
The castle is a gathering place and an immersion into all things Rabble. You can enjoy tasting flights at the bar, settle in for a glass or share a bottle with friends. Take advantage of our expansive seating—from indoor couches and large group tables to an outdoor patio lounge overlooking vineyards and mountains. You can also elevate your experience with live music and light bites from the kitchen every Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.
Due to limited seating, we have a strict 24-hour cancellation policy to reschedule or receive a refund. This will allow us to offer your spot to another guest. However, if you are sick or experiencing any flu like symptoms, we ask that you stay home and reschedule for a future workshop. Thank you for understanding.
