DIY Ceramic Clay Paint Palettes | TBD
In this workshop, participants will create their own one-of-a-kind desktop palette and paintbrush stand. Whether you want a travel palette or something more beautiful to use in your home studio, working with clay allows you to make the palette of your dreams!


- Clay to craft your palette (we'll be working with white stoneware)

- Tools to sculpt

- Decorative tools to personalise and sign your palette

- All firings (bisque + glaze firings)

At the end of your class your palettes will be left to dry slowly and gently to avoid warping and they'll then go through two 12 hour firings in the kiln. You can expect your pieces in roughly 5 weeks.

July Urban Outdoor Sketching | Saturday, July 20 10am-1pm
Sketching is Fine with Continuous Lines

August Urban Outdoor Sketching | Saturday August 17, 10-4pm 
Sketching BIG on Small

We enjoy carrying small sketchbooks because they are convenient to carry and fill up. However, there are times when you come across a large subject and feel the need for more space to sketch. In this workshop, Isabel will demonstrate techniques for sketching a large subject in a small sketchbook. This exercise focuses on maximizing space with a touch of imagination and creativity.
