Nan Roche I are teaching together in September!

Yay I am so excited. I love working with this woman.
Nan Roche is fun, smart, and I have a wonderful time playing clay with her.
So we decided it was time for another class.
We are teaching in West Virginia at the Train Station in Shepherdstown. It is a quaint little college town with boatloads of history and the Appalachian trail close by.
I love this part of the country and September should be gorgeous.
This is small and intimate class of 15
We have some spaces left.

Delving in the Translucent Deep
With Nan Roche and Marie Segal, September 2016 for the Shepherdstown Mixed Media Group.
Two days, two teachers, too much fun.

Nan and Marie have taught a couple of classes together. They have found that they love collaborating and they bring a lot of combined knowledge to the classes they have done.
Translucent clay is very versatile and can look like Millefiori glass with many layers, if handled carefully.

Come play with us! Discover you!Discover what you can do!
In this class we will explore the many treatments of translucent clay with caning, layering, andClay “fabrics”.
The first day we will work on many caning techniques, layered canes, and cane sheet work(fabrics).
The second day we will concentrate on construction and fabrication with our canes and sheets, giving you insight to into jewelry fabrication, wall pieces, bowls, and other kinds of pieces, as well.

These are Marie’s pictures of the work she has been doing in Translucent Cernit.

    I am so excited about this class. we have done this before and we have an amazing time!
    The work that people did in our class was amazing and completely theirs an a learning time for all.
    We can not wait.
    It is a small class to begin with and if we do not get 15 that will be fine also.
    Lucky me!
