WORKSHOP // with Amy Armstrong

Handbuilding in Porcelain &  Printing Patterns on clay 

Amy and I have been working side by side for the last month or so and we invite you to come and hand build with us.  We will be talking about pattern and layering glaze first to create a newsprint bold pattern background much like a printmaking process. Next we will hand build a bud vase and cover it in the patterns we designed. Lastly, we will talk about everyday clippings to display in your vase once it is sitting in your windowsill. Everyone will get a packet of seeds filled with herbs, and wildflowers to grow for fresh clippings all Spring long!  This is approximately a two hour workshop that will include all supplies and cost $55 each.  There is limited space at this workshop.
