Experience a whole new level of ceramic art. In this special two day workshop, you will use colored clays to make your own prints. This amazing technique was developed by Mitch Lyons who has demonstrated this new artistic method in over 100 workshops across the country. Lyons uses of colored ceramic slips which are drawn and painted on a surface and then printed onto paper (a ceramic monoprint). The unique use of ceramic materials yields colors and designs that have the drama and brilliance of acrylics but the softness and warmth of their ceramic base. They are one of a kind.

This special two day workshop includes all materials, including colored slips and clays, and lunch. Only 11 spaces are available.
