Keepsake Boxes

Hands-on Youth Workshop with Jennifer Allen.
Catalog # B047

Saturday, November 18th, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This hands-on experience will begin with students using 2D patterns to create 3D forms.  Layered onto template making and construction, Jennifer will demonstrate various ceramic surface treatments.  Participants will be creating their own texture tool using foam sheets, as well as using sprig molds, piercing through and carving the clay.  Jennifer will also discuss how personal content can be applied to student’s individual Keepsake Boxes using the techniques above, design and form.

This workshop is designed for youth ages 12 and older.  Previous clay experience is useful, but not necessary. If you need additional information, contact
