Back in January I talked about feeling discontent and wanting to mix things up a bit. The post was titled “Weaving, Looms & Change“.
It was crazy how much changing things up helped me!
So I continued to build on that idea. I learned how to crochet, I started playing with different types of painting and surface design AND the biggest one was I TOOK UP CERAMICS!
Ceramics/Pottery has been on my wish list of things to get better at since high school. I never had the opportunity or access to a studio or class… until now!
It turns out there is a very talented potter who lives right across the Potomac River in Virginia. Less than a 10 minute drive from me. Her name is Kristen Swanson and her classes and finished pieces are in high demand. Seriously, go look at it all. It’s gorgeous.
I somehow wiggled my way onto a wait list along with my friends Joann and Tanya (both fantastic local artist friends) and we were lucky enough to grab an 8 week Monday night class together. The lessons are all about using a wheel, but there is also extra studio time in the week where we can experiment.
I don’t have many pieces to show off yet, but if you follow me on IG, you can keep up in my new adventures! Adventures in CERAMICS!!Pin It
