Celebrate Fall by creating a natural leaf bowl in this class. Participants are encouraged to bring their own leaves/flowers, or use the ones we have gathered. Using various hand building techniques, participants will create a decorative leaf bowl using actual leaves found in nature. Create and add all the details and then glaze (paint) with colors to bring it to life. Projects will then be dried on our shelves and fired in the kiln, then they will be coated with a special clear glaze and fired again. Your finished 6”x6” project will be available for pickup 3 weeks later at ICCGS.
Date: Thursday, November 9th
Time: 6:15 PM-7:45 PM
