Dixie Irwin Teaches at Greenware Club
On May 11, Dixie Irwin, a SaddleBrooke artist, taught 12 members of the Greenware Club how to create a Tuscan plate. The lesson included proper technique of sponging and brush strokes to paint the grapes and the leaves. Everyone was delighted with Dixie’s method of teaching. On May 21, many members learned how to create a platter using bond paper to mask leaves to create a reverse “flow blue” platter.
The next few classes offered are as follows:
June 6, Coaster Set - Betty Edwards will show you how to use sandstone glaze to make this unique set; June 27, embellishing your greenware using slab roller - Eve Fly
During the June social, members will be creating stars and stripes on plates and wine coolers just in time for the Fourth of July. Look in the next issue of SaddleBrooke Progress for a complete listing of our July through December schedule of classes.
