Bring a bottle of wine, some glasses, a friend (or two) and create a one of a kind lace bowl. You can select a doily from our selection or bring your own. You will learn how to create your clay bowl with the doily embedded to create a beautiful texture. This is a two part workshop. Your bowl will remain here, dry and be fired, changing it from 'greenware' to bisque. You will schedule your return visit either during the workshop time or at a time convenient to your schedule when you will glaze your item with using a technique that will allow that gorgeous lace design to become the centerpiece of your artwork.
Great Workshop Option for all ages. This workshop is held in two sessions. The first session is 3 hours in length and is designed to provide a structured painting of a fairy house or fairy trailer (depends on availability, first come, first served). Additionally, in the first session we will be creating fairy garden accessories. The second session (2 hours) consists of "planting our fairy garden". Participants will receive a container, soil, plants (real and imitaion) and design time to put together their individual garden using their accessories and 'found' items to incorporate.
