All ages and skill/experience levels can enjoy success in producing a piece of functional art, employing the simplicity and complexity found in Nature's design. Participants will collect local leaves from a wide variety growing near the studio, or select from a freshly gathered collection.
Different options for designing with leaf impressions will be demonstrated, and used by the participants in their own creations. The pieces will remain in the studio to dry, then be 'bisque-fired' ready for a glaze application. The students may return to a glazing workshop, to learn about many finishing options and apply their own, or may request the studio to apply a simple finish. Either will be fired in the kiln, ready to be picked up at a later date.
