Announcing a New Class in the Hangar:

Ceramics on Wednesday Evenings

We have a new teacher! Her name is Katy Des Fontaines and she is going to teach Ceramics. You will soon be able to meet her and her technique. Like in Marie's sculpture class, the material is clay - but it is definitely no sculpture that Katy is going to teach. In her class you will create interesting and special refined art with some special techniques. And of course you will learn all there is to know about glazing.

On Wednesday evening, 28 October, from 6.30pm there will be a try-out lesson, your free-of-charge opportunity to meet Katy and get hands-on experience on the materials, your preparation and an impression of the class.

This free workshop takes place in the Hangar.
