Workshop | Decorative Elements in Clay – Holiday!

November 30, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Studio 5 Resident Kass O’Brien is back again with a workshop to learn decorative techniques using clay embellishments. She will be teaching on:

  • Carving and detailing using Sgraffito and best practices
  • Making appliques to embellish your work
  • Tips for a successful firing

Each student will be given a pre-made, pre-fired platter/plate or bowl ~10in wide. Attendees will have the opportunity to decorate the bowl using appliques or carving or both. Kass will lead the class through techniques to embellish the piece to make it uniquely your own, and skills you can take forward into future clay practices. Fun for all levels, no experience required. Perfect for holiday gifting or to add to your holiday decorations!

The embellished piece will then be fired and glazed solidly in one of the provided color choices that each student will pick up a few weeks later. Attendees will be notified via email when the bowls are ready for pickup.

All materials will be provided. This workshop is limited to 10 students, so reserve ASAP.

The Arts Warehouse Bar will be open for Happy Hour of Beer and Wine for $6.

Attendees ages 16+ are welcome to attend with guardian.

About the artist:

Kass O’Brien grew up in Pennsylvania, spending much of her childhood fishing and sailing on Lake Erie. Kass’s mother was a docent at a nearby art museum, which sparked her curiosity for art. She became active in the art community as a teenager, and later went on to receive a BFA at the Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her style focused on urban decay, inspired by steel mills along the Great Lakes.

When she moved to Florida, Kass became inspired by the local scenery and began considering different mediums, like ceramics, to express her love of nature. Whether it is seaweed that has washed ashore or a leaf that has fallen from a tree, she tries to transfer these moments into each piece that she creates.
