Yonder shop is a well designed space with unique, lovely, approachably designed items for your home, yourself, and your family. Every object in the store is selected because it has a story to tell. The approach is it's either well-designed, handmade, useful, beautiful, often all of the above. The aesthetic is modern while remaining warm and inviting.  There is a selection of the most contemporary makers in ceramics, mine and many others, and so much more to be explored and enjoyed. I am committed to being continually on the hunt for inspiring designers/makers who have a passion for what they do.

The storefront space was designed for flexibility.  Imagine a gathering place able to host monthly events showcasing great talent, gallery shows, and community events workshops, and trunk shows.

3 day INTENSIVE Hands on Class with Birdie Boone

325.00

June 17, 18, 19 10 - 4pm

This class is geared toward someone with basic skills -- late beginner to advanced.  Please email us any questions.

During this 3 day workshop, Birdie will demonstrate her hand building methods, share what motivates her own formal and technical decisions, and lead discussions on how ceramic materials and processes can 'follow' meaning/metaphor. Participants will learn to make hand building aids/tools including bisqueware/greenware bullet molds, hump molds and simple 1 or 2 piece press molds. During hands-on portions of the workshop, do everything from designing forms and creating paper templates to designing prototypes (and making the molds) for press-molded objects such as spouts, handles, and feet. Birdie will also present an introduction to color development in glazes.

325.00 includes personal instruction, snacks and beverages. + $25.00 material fee due on the first day of the workshop.
