The Village Potters Clay Center, located at Riverview Station in the River Arts District, is excited to announce the next Master Series demonstration workshop with Cynthia Lee, taking place on Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm as a part of their Independent Study & Mentoring Program.
Cynthia Lee will demonstrate a plethora of surface embellishments that will include materials like grog, handmade rollers, and found objects. Effects will be applied with the use of stencils, paper, terra sigilliata, and washes. Discussions will include creating a surface to convey self-expression and how that connects to your body of work. The demonstrations will utilize these surfaces to hand build sculptural wall boxes.
The workshop fee is $175, with a 20% discount for students of TVPCC. Non-student registration is available at www.thevillagepotters.com and all may also register by calling 828-253-2424.
