Felted Vessels & Bowls

- $75

Here is a fun way to create a 3 dimensional shape out of wool: in this class students will be felting over an inflatable ball to make a vessel or a bowl. We will explore different ways to manipulate the surface before and after felting. Materials used: dyed, carded wool and silk fibers. Absolutely no knitting is involved and no previous felting experience is necessary. Expect a bit of physical work while making felt. 
Materials will be supplied by the instructor at an additional cost of $15 per person. Please bring a plastic container, a bar of soap and 2 old towels to class.

Stories in Clay

- $115

Bring your story to life using clay! Participants in this new 2-session workshop will use handbuilding techniques, including sgraffito and bas-relief, to depict their story on a series of 3-4 tiles of their own creation. The subject matter is a personal choice … whether a fantasy or a real life journal entry. In the first class, students will discuss the history and use of handmade tiles, share stories, and then design, size, and transfer their drawings onto leather-hard clay. Carving, trimming decoration with underglazes, slips, and glazes will be completed in the second class.

All clay, supplies, and materials will be provided, however, bring any inspirational designs, photos, drawings, or motifs that help you tell your story.
