Workshop Outline

Do you want your surfaces to sing? Have you got a project you want resolve with the help of an expert? This class is for you! Many times, as an artist I have faced the unknown. With the tiniest thread of inspiration, I have started a project only to get little way in and think “I do not know what to do!” Fear of the unknown is a constant challenge for an artist and over the years I have developed a variety of techniques that help me navigate deeper into those exciting, murky waters. This class is about that vast, interior space where art comes from. (And about heaps and heaps of techniques to get your drawings onto your pots!)
