Join us for a fun evening of clay sculpting among friends! Guided by regional ceramicist Bethany Scott, participants will try their hand at a variety of clay hand-building techniques to create their very own unique ring dish! Once the clay pieces are dry and fired, a glaze will be applied. Participants will be notified when to pick up their completed ceramic pieces. Beginner and intermediate levels of experience are welcome.
Please note: Registration will be capped at ten participants. Face masks are mandatory.
Bethany Scott is the maker behind Rock Paper Poison. She creates wheel-thrown tableware in Orillia, Ontario. Scott’s first introduction to clay was through her grandfather, a potter from the Netherlands. She inherited his love of ceramics which led her to pursue a degree in Art History at McGill University, followed by a degree in Fine Art at Emily Carr University. Growing up on Manitoulin Island, her work is inspired by the beauty of the Canadian wilderness. Her designs are often influenced by other art forms such as illustration, textile pattern and storytelling. Lisa Scott’s aim is to create one of a kind pieces that will find their way into your heart and home, connecting you with the joy of everyday objects.
