Fall is coming. We're all settling back in to our lives without the sun. Now is the perfect time for creative growth.
In this class you will learn how to hand mold a plate with an emphasis on texturing techniques. You'll be painting with underglazes. These give you more control because they don't bleed, run or blend the way other glazes do. Your color and your lines are nearly identical before and after firing.
Because you are able to get a more accurate image, students may wish to bring inspiration images of something they would like to paint, or you can look at the warehouse for prints to work with.
After the workshop, your fine china will be taken to Minh's studio where she will coat it with a clear food safe glaze and before firing. Your finished work will be ready for pick up on October 23rd.

We wanna be like this guy. Not working. That's usually not an option but what better excuse than Labor Day to honor all of the hard work the team has done by giving them time off? You guys are all gonna be out of town anyway. So we're giving ourselves a break and we'll be back next weekend ready to take on the fall!
Hope you have the best weekend!
We're heading back upstate to bring you some of our favorite vintage selections at the Phoenicia Flea. This installment will be at Westwind Orchard, an organic pick-your-own farm in Accord, NY. It's pretty much the perfect day trip out of town.
Come breathe some fresh air with us!

It's all going on upstate these days. I spend as much time as I possibly can in Ulster County. So it just seemed natural to join the Phoenicia Flea, a curated collection of makers & sellers from the Catskills, Hudson Valley and beyond.
Check it out in Ryan Roche's Guide to the Best of Upstate NY in the New York Times.
Come breathe some fresh air with us! :)

Most of us know better than to slather our faces with chemicals, but we get busy and do it anyway. We try to buy natural products only to find out they have some random ingredient that's really bad for our skin. We don't want to drop a ton of money for something we're not sure will work.
Adina Grigore, author of Skin Cleanse and mastermind founder of SW Basics, wants to help. As a local business, her products are already well loved in Brooklyn. But now you get the opportunity to make this stuff yourself!
In this class we'll be making an assortment of products: a scrub, mask, cream, facial and body oil, toner, and cleanser! You'll get to take home a bag full of new products, and you'll learn the principles of simple DIY--how to turn kitchen cabinet ingredients into effective, beautiful skincare. Copies of Skin Cleanse will be available for purchase in case students would like to go home and continue their DIY journey!
I don't know if you could really ask for much more. This is gonna be great.

Artist Libby VanderPloeg and I have put together a drawing series for this summer, each installment having it's own theme. The inaugural theme? Summer vacation, naturally. Not into drawing? There will also be stacks of old magazines and other collage materials on hand to get the imagination going.
We'll have pens and paper as well as props, but if you have supplies you love to work with, feel free to bring them!
Come join us for a relaxed evening of fun drawing and shared creativity.
