Barn Class with finished Pots

Late Spring Ceramics Classes. May 9th-June 15th

Follow your own bread crumb trail of creativity into narrative animal sculptures or slab built pottery and play with illustration on the surfaces. If you’re new to clay, I’ll be offering projects to help get you started. Classes meet 10:00 am-1:00 pm (Tues, Wed or Thurs). The cost for this 6 program ($210) includes clay, slip, glaze, firings and use of studio tools. Optional work time (beyond the class) will be available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:15-5:00 as well as on Fridays from 8am-5pm for an additional $5/hour (includes all materials and firings).

Learn to Ride the Wave: Color (Yeah, it’s theory but it’s FUN): May 12 – June 16th.

Join this 6 week class in an engaging hands-on studio experience exploring concepts of color. This class will include mixing colors, discovering color schemes, and learning unpredictable ways color enlivens and brightens artistic designs, as well as our everyday environments. Roll up your sleeves, find a brush, pick up a palette knife and join in! Deborah Bruns-Thomas, (painter/multi-media) is the teacher. All skill levels welcome. Cost for the 6 week offering is $187 and does not include materials fee (estimated at $50). Please be directly in touch with Deborah by email: with questions or to register.

2 Summer 5-Day Workshops offered here in Doylestown, PA.

Sculpture: July 17th-21st OR July 24th-28th

Telling stories through animal figures is SO MUCH FUN! You might think it’s too hard or any number of beliefs that keep you from giving it a shot. In my experience making figures is actually easier than making pots. What’s so much harder is finding the WILLINGNESS to start. And I LOVE addressing that very stuck place anyone who has ever tried to navigate these turbulent emotional waters experiences. If you relate to what I’m saying, then come on in, the water’s fine (not shark infested as the mind would have you believe)! We’ll start simply and move to more complexity as the week goes along. We’ll move through construction and surface treatments. And we’ll also play around some with dipping metal and stuffed animals into casting slip for an entirely different approach. The cost for this 5 day intensive is $595 which includes clay, underglaze and a full palette of dry-brush slips. Tools are provided though you’re welcome to bring any favorites.

Lisa is Taking a Year Long Sabbatical from Traveling to Teach Workshops!

After the extraordinary response to the instructional DVDs that Ceramic Arts Daily produced on my work a few years ago, I found myself compelled to teach at the myriad venues that asked for a visit. It’s been a lot of work, a lot of fun and quite a privilege to travel around the country as I have. From where I sit, I can tell you that the practice of ceramics is alive and well in the USA. All the travel, transitions and twists however have taken a toll on my private practice. I’m aware that I don’t prefer to teach what isn’t alive for me. Teaching what isn’t alive comes more from one’s head than heart. And I’m partial to engaging both when I hold space for people exploring their creativity. So it’s time for me to get quiet here at home… to show up for myself and see what arises. The places I choose to travel are of an “inward” nature for this next year.

If you’re interested in proposing a workshop, please be in touch. I’m open to scheduling workshops that would happen after August, 2017.
