TWO DAY MATA ORTIZ ANIMAL WORKSHOP 
with  JERARDO TENA SANDOVAL
Saturday and Sunday October 28th and 29th 
10:00am - 4:00pm

Join Master Potter Jerardo Tena Sandoval to learn the pottery techniques of Juan Mata Ortiz, Mexico.
 
Internationally recognized for their pottery, the potters of Mata Ortiz have revived the ancient art of the Paquimé people, a civilization that flourished in the area 600-800 years ago. As if guided by the spirit of the Paquimé Indians, a struggling pueblo has become a community of fine ceramic artists renowned the world over.
On the first day you will learn hand-building techniques to create your own Mata Ortiz animal. On the second day you will learn how to sand and burnish a pot or "olla" made by Jerardo and his wife. Time permitting, you will even create your very own paint brush made from human hair.
Don't miss out on this very special class and an opportunity to learn from one of the leaders of the Mata Ortiz phenomenon.
FULL DAY HANDS ON CLASS FEE*: $150
(Small pots and clay provided; Please bring your lunch)
*Sign up for any workshop over $100 and get 10% off your second workshop, contact us for a promotion code.
