Description

Here comes spring to free us from our forced time indoors! Celebrate the warm season’s return with sculptures…. an offering to the flowers! Make a shrine to mother nature, a birdbath, or create butterfly beads strung on a line from tree to tree. Learn which clays will handle a freeze and those that need to come indoors for the winter.  Kathleen will help you choose the best clay for the site and exposure.

Consider which building method is best for your project.  A low broad birdbath has different building and firing needs than a tree of life.  Explore building with double walls, using drop molds or building with coils.  Embellish and adorn…no rush to learn quickly; these projects can stretch into the summer.

Zoom classes will be augmented by recorded demonstrations and other resource materials.  An initial bag of clay will be provided at pick up, as well as some slips.
