Picture 3482Join ceramicist and WWOOFer Hannah Medovnikov and Denise Sawyer in a two-part pottery class building miniature homes for your resident garden gnomes or fairies. During the first session, participants will design and construct their fairy homes using clay and considering features to be embellished after firing. After the houses are dry, we will fire them and bring them back to be glazed during the second session. We’ll discuss ways to add ‘features’ to your fairy house….doors, shutters, and even a ‘living’ roof ! After the glaze firing your pieces will be ready for installation! We will be using slab building and pinching techniques to make miniature shelters, perfect for any ‘little folks’ who may be wandering your woodland or gardens. Along with guidance from Hannah on how to build and design out of clay, Denise will discuss how to best design around your new piece of mini real estate. Materials and supplies are included…..plus, as with most all classes here at Fernwood, tea and scones will be served!
