It sounds silly, it is silly, but if you love your pet as much as I love mine then this is a really fun way to honor them and goof off with a bunch of other animal lovers.
This class will take place in two parts! On Day 1 (July 15th) participants will make the clay portrait of their pet in any format they like - you can make a full-body figurine, a diorama of your pet in their favorite spot in your home, a plaque with their little face on it, whatever you please. Alexis will cover basic hand building techniques to assist you in making your sculpture.
After the pieces have dried they will be bisque fired in preparation for Day 2 - decorating!
During the second class (July 29) you get to paint your little friend! Again, Alexis will talk participants through the process of glazing and choosing different surface treatments for their pieces. You will be able to choose from a wide range of glazes and underglazes to make the perfect version of your pet.
Finished work will be available for pick up within 3 weeks - you will receive an email when your pieces are ready.
