Visiting Artist Workshops




Join Artist Didem Mert in a hands-on, creative clay workshop.  Mert will demonstrate using soft slabs within bisque slump molds to create her signature ovaled bowl forms. She will apply terra sigillata and AMACO Velvet Underglaze on the bowl to create a sense of playfulness directed through the color palette, while retaining a minimalistic design.
