Demonstration and hands-on workshop with Merle Lambeth, a San Diego artist whose work is familiar to Borrego. Merle is the current president of the Clay Artists of San Diego, a member of the San Diego Potters' Guild and a host on the San Diego Pottery Tour.

Merle will demonstrate how to turn a slab of clay into a folded form. Instructions will be given on how to make your own templates, cut and fold slabs into bowls, cups, and small plates. She will present ways of texturing the surface, using stamps made of clay, wood and found objects and making your own. During this 2-day workshop you will make your own texture stamps, build folded forms which will be glazed and fired at a later date.

Fee is $150 and includes materials and firing. Class minimum:8, maximum 12.
