The Old Church Cultural Center is offering a 3 day
hands-on workshop with Silvie Granatelli, Wed thru
Fri, June 16-18, in Demarest, NJ, which is 7 miles
from Manhattan and easily accessible to I87 and I80/95.

The course description is:

"We will examine contemporary pottery, the relationship of food, culture and
how we make our pots personal. Working with porcelain, the wheel will be
used as a tool to form various pots, which will be altered along with some
hand-building. The development of surface decoration, carving, slip
trailing, and colored stain drawings will be explored. All of these surface
techniques are employed before the bisque stage."

Those of you familiar with her work know that Silvie's
work is uniquely bright and painterly for high fire, and
a pleasure to use. She has a lot to show us!

Space is limited so please register early!
