One Night Stand @ Silvermine Arts Center

Bring your date and a bottle of champagne and learn how to throw on the potter’s wheel on Friday, February 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan.  

The class will start with the raw brown stoneware clay.  Instructors  will  go over all the basic skills to form the clay into a bowl. After creating the bowl an optional demo participants will be shown how to alter the shape of the bowl into a heart. The addition of color will be the final touch and will be done by using tinted liquid clays called slips. This project will take approximately six weeks to be fired.

The next "one night stand" is scheduled for March 3 and the subject is The Art of Decoupage.  Participants will make unique glass plates done with decoupage-cut and glued paper-that make great gifts for all occasions. Any type of imagery, color and the ability to personalize these plates let you express your creative ideas. The plates can be used for display or serving. These plates are fun and quick to create- come join us. Participants will be shown quick and simple steps to finish their plates at home. If you wish to use personal photos to use on your plate, please bring them.
This class  is an opportunity to experience various forms of fine art in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, without the long commitment. These mini evening workshops hosted by the Silvermine are perfect for participants with no experience in the arts or for those who have experience but not in that area of study.
Each session has a different instructor and a different art experience. You can invite your spouse, friends and family to spend time together while creating works of art and enjoying each other’s company. You are welcome to bring a bottle of wine and some snacks, and be creative. These workshops are for ages 17 and up only. Art materials will be provided for all workshops. All Levels are Welcome, the cost is $50 and you can sign up online or by calling 203-966-9700.
