Lynn Wood Workshop

We've gone to the birds'

Saturday, June 30

In this workshop Lynn will share her techniques for making original bird ornament templates. Everyone will create several of their own to use in the workshop and beyond.  Additionally, we will be making 3-D art for the wall.  Lynn will also share her firing, decorating and glazing techniques for these items.

Participants are encouraged to bring along their favorite tools including any tiny texturing tools. Lynn will provide a number of images to work from, but images of any birds or other animals of interest could also be used, so bring them along. Beginners are welcome! Hope you can come join the fun and learn some new techniques.
