Come join Lynn wood, AKA, the pottery texture queen in this mini workshop making fun and unique texture tools for pottery. Lynn will share a number of techniques using unusual materials to create a number of texture tools that can be used to create beautiful surfaces on your clay. After working and creating a number of personal texture tools, everyone will have the opportunity to create a couple of small plates breaking in the new tools. No experience necessary!
Instructor / Artist
Lynn Wood is THE Pottery Texture Queen. She is inspired by textures found in nature, architecture, and textiles and brings this joy into her work through pattern, texture, and color. Lynn has developed her own patterned texture mats that can be used on hand-built and thrown pottery in a variety of ways and they are available for sale at Sonoma Community Center. Lynn lives in Santa Rosa, shows and teaches nationally, and, of course teaches at Sonoma Ceramics.
When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
