New Classes for Fall are Up!

Now that it's October (I still can't believe time is going so fast!), I have finalized my list of classes for the rest of the year.  For those of you who have taken my classes before, you will be familiar with the format, for everyone else:  I have mixed level classes every Monday night from 5:30 to 8:30, each evening with a different subject relating to metal clay.  Students are welcome to come into the studio any time after 4:00 to work independently until the class starts. Others who wish to work on their own but do not wish to participate in the class are also welcome.  One thing that is different is that each class is priced separately, depending on the subject matter.  Some classes go more than one week.

I have had a lot of requests for bronze and copper clay classes, since the price of silver keeps rising, so my first two classes will be quick "tastes" of bronze and copper clay.  Because of the nature of firing these clays, classes must be split into two evenings.  This class will be appropriate for those who have used silver clay before and want to try the bronze and copper clays, as well as for those who have never used clay before.

I will also have classes on making your own textures with some new techniques I learned when I was at Haystack as well as hollow forms and one evening dedicated to working with dry clay in which I will have lots of tips, tricks and demonstrations, including how to reconstitute clay.  This is a great thing to know if you tend to accumulate a lot of shavings and leftovers.

Two Saturday workshops are also scheduled.  They are geared towards beginners but any levels are welcome to participate.

I have worked hard to make it easy for you to register for classes.  You can register right through my website and pay with PayPal or credit card or reserve a space and indicate you will be paying by cash or check.  One thing to note is that deadline for registration for a class is one week prior to the beginning of class to be sure we have enough supplies for everyone.

You can see full descriptions of these classes as well as register at www.willowandme.com/register.  Each is also on my calendar, which you can find at www.willowand.com/showschedule.  I will also be adding these as events to my Facebook Page, which you can check often for updates.  That will be the best place to check for cancellations as well.  I am very excited about these classes.  I hope to see you there.
