Have fun creating some spectacular pottery pieces from scratch! In an easy step-by-step instruction style, Shayne will demonstrate a selection of slab projects for you to choose from such as square bowls, textured platters or creative planter boxes. Or design your own project with her help. The first session will be to make a piece and the second session will be to glaze it. This workshop is open to adults and young people 12 years old and up (accompanied by an adult).
Shayne Berlin-Snaiderman has a diploma in Ceramics from George Brown College. For the past 20 years she has taught pottery to children, adults and seniors. She is currently the ceramics instructor at the Toronto arts based school Heschel, teaches seniors at the Bernard Betel Centre, runs after school programs at several schools and pottery studios and runs workshops at the Reena Foundation for developmentally disabled young adults. Shayne has exhibited at Toronto Potters Biennial Exhibition, Toronto Art Exhibition and was awarded an Excellence in Ceramics Award during her graduation exhibition at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art. What she enjoys most about teaching is constantly creating new projects to teach in a simple and step-by-step fashion to give her students a strong understanding of the clay medium, giving them the satisfaction of having created what might have seemed impossible to make, and inspiring them to build their own creative work.
