Alabama Face Jugs

Event Details

While face jugs were commonly created in many African cultures and also date back to Medieval times in Europe, these whimsical, sometimes outlandish vessels came to the American South during the 1800s. The first American face jugs are attributed to African American slaves, and eventually they grew to become a popular American household item. Join us for a family-friendly clay workshop where participants can craft their own imaginative facial expressions to attach to a clay jug in celebration of this deeply rooted Southern tradition.

Registration fee is $5 for MMofA members and $15 for non-members.
