The Painted Surface

Join me in my bright airy studio for a few hours of creative relaxation as you create a painted design on a simple tufts made vessel...

Bring along inspiration in the form of colors, shapes, pattern for your pot or ideas that you would like to transfer into narrative. If not we will have some inspiration at the ready... Then, with a little discussion of possibilites and instruction on how to transfer your ideas to your pot, we will get right into it.
