Workshop Description:
In this hands on two day workshop, we will create a birdhouse that can be used inside or out. The first night we will construct the birdhouse out of slabs of clay. You will be given a basic pattern and then you can let your imagination run wild! They will then be fired in between classes, and on the second night we will glaze them. They will be fired again, and you will be able to pick up your finished project afterwards.
Anne‘s Bio
My introduction to clay was at an intense two week art program where we worked in a wooded setting and lived in cabins. I was hooked! After graduating from St. Mary’s College with a BA in Fine Art, I took a few classes here and there. Over the years I have dabbled in many different mediums- stone carving, stained glass, jewelry making and photography. About ten years ago, I rekindled my interest in pottery on a regular basis. I have created a body of work in pottery that I exhibit and sell at area art shows. Along the way I have built a loyal following of collectors. My pottery has been included in the MAAC show in St. Joseph, Michigan several times, including a Purchase award and a Merit award in 2013. I currently have a piece on exhibit in “Around the Bend” at the South Bend Museum of Art. I have been teaching Pottery at The Elkhart Art League for a year.
