Fall Workshops

The previous tentative schedule has been abandoned as we invite guest teachers into our studio.

Drybrushing with Laura

Monday, October 8th, 6:00-10:00 during regular class time
Laura Gilbert will teach the technique of drybrusing on a covered turkey bowl and matching set of salt & pepper shakers. As this technique is time-consuming, you may need to finish your pieces during a later session. Here are pictures of the pieces; however, not drybrushed. Cost is $20.00 which includes lesson, supplies, and bisque. If you have stiff brushes for drybrushing please bring them with you.

Aspen Leaves 

Saturday, October 20th 2:00-5:00
Duncan Ambassador Dru Woodward will be teaching this Duncan University class on the square box. This is a new technique which uses glass frit. Certified Duncan Teachers will receive credit for this class. Reservations required.  [We previously advertised doing it with Duncan’s Welcome Board but changed to a smaller item to keep the cost down. Anyone wanting to do this technique on the Welcome Board can do so later during an open class.] Cost is $35.00. This includes lesson, bisque, paints, certificate of completion, and additional firing since the frit will move if transported.

More Mandelas

Sunday, October 21st 2:00-5:30
Dru Woodward will be teaching another workshop for us on Sunday, previous to the IADCCT Chapter Organizational meeting. This new technique involves using various tools to apply dots of Cover Coat underglazes to an 8″ plate previously base-coated with blue, green, or black Cover Coats. Specify which color you want when you register. Cost is $35.00 which includes lesson, bisque, paints, and firing.

Country Holiday Poinsettia Plate

Sunday, November 4th 2:00-5:00
Duncan Ambassador Larry Knight will be teaching this Duncan University class. Certified Duncan Teachers will receive credit for this class. Reservations required. This technique shows us how to create a wood background and uses fired gold as an accent. The gold is optional and must be applied during a later class after the piece is glazed and fired. This pattern can be applied to any flat plain piece of bisque. We are offering the bell plate OR the oval platter OR a round dinner plate. Please specify which one when you register. Cost is $35.00 which includes lesson, bisque, paints, and certificate of completion. There will be an additional charge for the gold and extra firing, dependent on the amount of gold used.

Country Holiday Duncan U course

Casual Country Snowmen

Sunday, November 25th 2:00-5:00; Monday, Wednesday, Friday 6:00-9:00
Carol will be teaching this David Hoff Workshop using brushstrokes and neon Concepts on four square salad plates. You may choose to paint the edge of the plate in a solid color, creating a “Frame” for each picture. Cost of $20.00 includes lesson, four plates, paints, and firing.

NOTE: these workshops have been posted as events on Facebook and you should have received an invitation.  Please let me know if you are coming so that we have enough supplies. The Drybrushing workshop and the snowman workshop are offered on class nights. However, you may come and paint something else if you are not interested in the workshop.

Carol’s Carousel
Where having FUN is why we come!

Here is a chance to learn from true professionals.

It is not often that Duncan Ambassadors come all the way from Florida and Toledo, so take advantage of the opportunity this fall.
