This workshop is all about choices. Students can make symbolic or inspirational plates, they can make parts that fit together like a puzzle or they can come in with an idea in mind that I will help with techniques to make their idea happen. Also offered will be 4 inch square pieces of wood to do a “stack” of parts using words and/or images. These can be hung on the wall or not. Color will be available with acrylic paint and we will use paper clay which does not have to be fired. I will give a short demo of using stamps and using slabs of clay and other techniques as needed.
