Clay Instruments

Ages 5-10 ~ 4 Tuesdays, 3/28 - 4/25, or 4 Wednesdays, 3/29 - 4/26, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm ~ $165

How can we make clay that rattles and rings? Can we carve a mouthpiece just right so that the finished piece even whistles? We will explore clay as a medium for musical instruments, and we'll design pieces in a variety of forms (like animals) and with interesting patterns (inspired by southwestern Native American designs), as we prepare for a musical share. Students will share supportive, constructive ideas with one another, and all materials are included. At Ilana's home studio near Sargent School, Beacon, NY.

Summer Feast

Ages 5-10 ~ 4 Tuesdays, 5/2 - 5/23, or 4 Wednesdays, 5/3 - 5/24, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm ~ $165

What is the perfect plate for pepperoni pizza? Should lemonade be served in a double handled mug or a goblet? As we get ready for this special four-week workshop, we will plan a Solstice dinner, delegate dishes, and come to the clay table ready to create the perfect serving pieces for presentation. We will hand build our wares, inviting imagination when it comes to the design. Sculpted creatures may emerge from the side of a spaghetti bowl. Butterfly prints may flutter into the walls of our salad plates. Weeks one and two, we will focus on building the pieces. Weeks three and four, we decorate them with underglaze and sgraffito. On Tuesday, June 20th we bring our potluck of delicacies in our finished pieces, and we will feast in Ilana’s backyard garden! Students will share supportive, constructive ideas with one another, and all materials are included. At Ilana's home studio near Sargent School, Beacon, NY.
