We're scheduling the raku class for Saturday June 9 (10-2) and Thursday evening June 14 (6-9) at the Icehouse, and Saturday June 23 at Wayne Stebbin's studio for the raku firing part. $80 members/$90 non-members for the three classes including supplies. John Cannon, the pottery teacher from PSAD, will be assisting Michael Ramsey and Wayne Stebbins. Class size is limited. Send a message or phone at (270) 247-6971 to reserve a seat.
We consider Jennifer Fairbanks to be one of the best artists in the country. Her still-life paintings, portraits and landscapes bear the master's touch and are both original and important. She has been venturing away from her gallery/studio in downtown Murray lately and will be teaching a class at the Icehouse on June 15 and 16.
The topic of this class has yet to be determined. We will be taking reservations for ten seats and I will provide more information and a materials list in the coming days. If you register and then decide the topic of the class is not for you, we will refund your payment.
Carl has been offering scroll designs, desk name blocks and wooden scroll puzzles through the Gift Shop for almost a year. Now he is offering to conduct a workshop to introduce students to designing and making these wooden pieces. This will be offered in March or April. If this form of woodworking gains a following, we will consider purchasing equipment and offering a regular class series throughout the year.
