The Illustrated Pot With Molly Anne Bishop
Join Chicago-based artist Molly Anne Bishop for 2 days of constructing and illustrating your own pottery. In this workshop, you’ll discover Mollys version of sgraffito, on hand built objects made on slump molds. Molly will share tips and tricks that she's discovered on her own clay journey and you will explore idea-generating drawing exercises on paper. Potters of all levels will learn to build functional cups and plates with low fire terra cotta slabs.
