Learn to create succulents!
In the first class, we will discuss what plates, china, pottery and more work best to create succulents out of china/pottery/ceramics and stained glass. We will discuss what materials and tools are needed, and what type of pottery works best. We will also make pottery/china, rock and putty succulents together.
The second class is the succulent composition class, on how to assemble the succulents into the finished piece, what natural materials to gather and how to create a cohesive background. You can gather your materials and succulents at home or can use the materials I have at the studio. Inexpensive substrate options from wood to frames will be discussed. Included in the class fee is a piece of wood approx, 5×8″. There will be frames of varying sizes available for an additional fee.
The completed succulents can be used as wall art, as a table centerpiece or used to augment plant pots, picture frames and more.
This is an introductory class. If you want to further explore creating succulents, you are welcome to do so in my weekly in-studio classes (you can purchase a single class, a 4-pack, or a 10-pack).
