Meeting for September 14, 2019

Our next guild meeting will be Saturday, September 14th, 2019 from 1:30-4:30 p.m, at New Day Church of the Nazarene, 5949 NW 39th Expressway in Warr Acres. Enter through the glass doors near the back of the building.

We will have our bimonthly drawing, so if you won something last time, bring something this time!

From Lori:

Due to circumstances not entirely under my control, this is going to be a demo with play time, as opposed to a project. (Although I guess veneers could be considered “projects”)

I will bring:

Silkscreens, stencils, mica powders, paints, and maybe some other things. These will be available to play with after the demos.

I’ll also have a couple of old giftcards or hotel keycards and a couple of tubs for the silkscreens

Things you might want to bring

-Standard clay tools (pasta machine, work surface, blades, etc)

-black clay (or other dark clay)

-your favorite clay colors

-any powders, paints, silkscreens, or stencils you wish to play with

If you want to try silkscreening with paint, bring a plastic bin to put water in, such as a pencil box or shoebox-sized bin.
