Visiting artist, Holly Dowidat of Dowidat Ceramics, joins us at HAEC for pumpkin season! At this workshop, people will be working with slab-rolled clay to sculpt and texturize ceramic pumpkins. Holly will teach participants all about clay and sculpture techniques. Various glazes and stains have been selected to colorize and finish the works created.   

Holly found her passion for throwing clay after taking a Ceramics workshop in Italy. Since, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from IPFW, worked for an Art Center, and grew her skill base by attending workshops. Holly discovered her passion is in making unique functional pieces of pottery that people can enjoy in daily life. Her focus on community has led her to share her knowledge with the students at HAEC.  

Students are invited to participate in the workshop during fall break. The finished pieces will be completed in-house and available for pickup. Show off your handcrafted pumpkin just in time for Halloween!  

This event is for anyone 12 years of age and older. The price is $55, and that includes the cost of materials. Finished pieces will be available for pickup on October 28th. We have openings for 10 participants per class.
