A new class out at Terra Studios for ages 12+.
Green Man Planter
The Green Man image comes in many forms as far back as 400 AD. Most of them are made up of a man’s face surrounded by leaves. The leaves often appear to be growing out of the face. These images are found carved into wood and stone throughout Europe, Great Britain, and Ireland. In this class, we will start out making a stump-like planter with an emerging face. We will impress real leaves into flat slabs of clay, cut out the leaf shapes, and surround his face with foliage. Your planter will be stained with a rustic iron oxide stain by your instructor. This class is so new that I only have a picture of one I just made! This planter will look wonderful in your home, patio, or flower garden.
This class is designed for those age 12 and up.
Please print your receipt as your class admission ticket.
All materials are included in the cost of the workshop. Please wear comfortable, “artist” clothing – i.e., remember clothing may get stained with clay, dyes, glazes, paints, or whatever you happen to be working with at the time. Also, remember that layers are helpful with heating/air conditioning and time outdoors.
Please arrive at the Terra Studios Gallery at least 15 minutes before your scheduled class time, and check in at the register. Your teacher will meet you in the Gallery.
