Come join me at Follow Your Art Community Studios (FYACS) on Main St. in Melrose, MA for a fundraiser Ceramic Plate workshop on Wednesday, December 1st from 7:30-9PM or Friday, December 3rd from 7-8:30PM!

In this 90 minute workshop fundraiser, you will make your own decorative plates.

The Projects:

Plate project #1: You will cut, shape, and imprint your own plate or tray. I will bring original clay stamps, linocut stamps, and textured rollers. We will use white clay, and I will glaze all pieces with a transparent glaze.

These ring trays / soap dishes are imprinted with hand-made original stoneware and linocut stamps. The pieces featured are made from brown clay.

Plate project #2: You will underglaze with Amaco Velvet Underglaze, carve, and/or sgraffito your own small round or rectangular ring plate. We will use white clay, and I will glaze all pieces with a transparent glaze.

Workshop Details:

All supplies included, and we will aim to fire plates to be ready for pickup at Follow Your Art by December 21st.

This workshop is appropriate for ages 12 through adults. Pricing is $40 per person. Children ages 7-11 can come with an adult (register the adult and add the child for $25).

Sign up for Wednesday’s workshop here and Friday’s workshop here!

All proceeds from these workshops will support Follow Your Art Community Studios’ Ceramic Studio Campaign to build a ceramics studio in the heart of Melrose, MA, offering a local opportunity for Melrose residents and neighbors to take classes and workshops, make and sell ceramic work, and come together and create as a community of ceramicists.
