LLBRV offers ceramic workshop

— Submitted photo Participants in a workshop Wednesday will have a chance to create winter tree sculptures. The class will be available both in person and via Zoom.

Legacy Learning Boone River Valley will offer a winter sculptural trees workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

The workshop will be lead by artist Madalyn Loring at the Produce Station Pottery, 723 Seneca St., Webster City. Due to COVID-19, the in-person sessions will require masks and the participants will social distance. Participants can also pick up the clay kits and take part in a Zoom lesson. Zoom links will be provided after registration on the day of the workshop. Call before Wednesday to arrange for a contactless curbside pick up of materials, 835-1264.

During the in-person and Zoom sessions, Loring will show how to create simple pinch pots and transform them into winter trees. The trees can be decorated the tree with clay attachments, carvings or paint with underglaze. She said examples to think about would be snow or ornaments or even candy canes.

Participants will create the clay trees, sculpt the details and paint with underglaze. The pieces will then be fired at the studio. Trees will be ready to go home right before the holidays. Participants can call ahead to pick them up at the studio.

The tuition for the workshop is $20 plus a $10 firing fee. To register, visit www.legacylearningbrv.org or call 835-2364.
