Hand Building Ceramics – Make Your Own Leaf Plate with Dolores Thomson
Sessions: Saturdays April 1 and April 15, 11am-1:30pm both sessions
Location: The Shirt Factory, Suite #312, 71 Lawrence Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801
No experience is needed to create beautiful and functional leaf plates that will rival the real thing! Real leaves are pressed into a rolled slab of clay, each one makes their own unique impression. Then they are cut out, manipulated and shaped to your liking. There will be a selection of leaves for everyone to use, but feel free to bring your own.
The leaf plates you make will be functional and safe to use for food. They are also great to use as a spoon rest, candle holder, soap dish, sponge dish, jewelry holder, decorative accents for the table or wall, etc.
Space is limited to 6 participants, call (518)793-2826 to reserve your spot. Payment is required at time of registration.
