Using reclaimed porcelain, leftover fabric, kitchen scraps and yard waste you'll create unique wearable art. Beads and pendants will be made from recycled porcelain clay using underglaze and texturing. These will be combined with textile cords and decorative elements from pre-consumer recycled material some of which you will naturally dye from kitchen scraps and yard waste. The dye will include pink from avocados and brown from walnut hulls among others. You'll also naturally dye a cotton scarf. On the second day of class, we'll create an indigo vat so you can up-cycle a stained or out of date item of clothing from home.

The workshop will be hosted at The Pond, 32 W. Pomfret St, Carlisle, PA, and co-taught by Kirsten Olson (K. Olson Ceramics) and Carol Reed.

2 Saturdays: October 12th from 10 am to 4 pm with a lunch break (please pack a lunch or dine out locally) and October 19th from 10 am to 12 pm

Class fee: $145, which includes $55 in materials. Click here to register.
