In this 2-day ceramic workshop, Cheryl Tall will show how to sculpt animals, how to make sections in sculpture, and how to once-fire by putting glazes on greenware.

Monsters and guardians, symbols of immortality, hope, fear and wonder - animal lore has long fascinated the human race. A runaway best seller in the Middle Ages, bestiaries catalogued and described these animals, such as the phoenix, the unicorn, the mermaid, the sphinx, the centaur, and the dragon. Join us on a creative safari into the jungles of human fears, nightmares, and internal disturbances.

The only weapons needed are your creativity and imagination! For beginning to advanced ceramic skills!!
