Celebrate Arbor Day by making a hand-made tile impressed with a leaf from your favorite tree! On Arbor Day evening, Friday, April 26th, from 6-8pm, join Suzanne Crane at Mud Dauber Pottery in Earlysville, Virginia for an intimate, fun, hands-on workshop on making botanical tiles using tree leaves.  Each participant will be provided with a pre-cut 6″ square wet stoneware tile and plenty of help with impressing your tree leaf or leaves. Also included: white porcelain slip and brushes, extra texturing tools (or bring your own, if inspired), alphabet stamps to label your tree leaf, and a cup of wine or fizzy water.  After the workshop, we will carefully dry your tile to help ensure flatness, then bisque fire and glaze fire your tile in the color of your choice.

The workshop is $70/person/tile.  For the Friday 6-8pm meeting, adults only.  Here’s the link to buy a spot in the workshop: https://suzannecrane.com/product/arbor-day-tree-leaf-tile-making-workshop/

If there is enough interest, we could arrange another session on Saturday that could include children 12 years and older with their parents.  Please call the studio at 434-973-7943 to register your interest.
