The Art of Making French Croissants
Dough...another material but very similar to clay is really fun to work with too. The benefit is that unlike clay, with dough you can eat your mistakes! Baking is an art and a science. It has taken me years to duplicate the kind of croissants you can get in Paris.

This coming Sunday I will be teaching a workshop on "Woven Rocks".

Sunday August 7, 2016

Workshop at Open Concept Gallery
125 Main Street
Cold Spring NY 10516

A relaxing meditative practice that I learned from weaver Lissa Hunter at Haystack School of Craft in Deer Island Maine.
I will bring with me a collection of smooth white and black stones which I have collected over the years and you will be able to choose one or two or three depending upon how fast you catch on to the stitch.
It is just one weaving stitch called "Looping" that originated as a basket making technique.
 As you can see from the photos that that one stitch can be executed in numerous ways. Most people catch on very quickly.

Please RSVP as there is only space for 8. This is a popular workshop, so reserve early. RSVP to info@whiteforestpottery.com

If this fills up I will hold another workshop later in the fall

**Later in the fall I will be teaching a class on how to make Plaster Molds and you will be able to bring a favorite object in which to mold. Then a week later, after the mold has dried thoroughly, you will be able to make multiple castings from that mold. 
Making Plaster Molds Workshop will be held on September 24th SAVE THE DATE.

This video is of my teacher at Haystack who taught me everything I know about slip casting and mould making. This Sunday, I will be teaching a workshop on the same subject at Open Concept Gallery 125 Main Street Cold Spring  from 4 to 6pm. The fee is $25 with includes materials.

You will be able to make an object from one of my molds, then alter it to suit your own design just as you see Philippe do in the video. Space is limited so RSVP as soon as you think you may be interested (you can always change your mind : ) but I'd like to get a rough idea of how many students will be coming by Sunday morning. RSVP to my email: info@whiteforestpottery.com or sign up on my website under "workshops" at www.whiteforestpottery.com'

This is an interesting process to see and do so if you are looking for some fun this weekend sign up.
hope to see you there!
