CHASE GAMBLIN WORKSHOP 2017

Website:  http://www.chasegamblin.com/ 

July held a surprise for all....a one-day workshop with Chase Gamblin.   We had the opportunity to have Chase visit from Indiana and we took it!   The Clayworkers' Guild, in conjunction with McHenry County College Clay Club, hosted the workshop and lunch that was centered around decorating with slip.   Slip is such a great way to give texture to your pieces and we certainly learned a lot from Chase!  Our thanks go out to him for teaching us the wonders of slip and sharing his techniques.
