Clay Nicho Class!!

Clay Nicho Class
September 29, 9-4pm
Armstrong County League of Arts
Kittanning PA 16201

A nicho is an object of Latin American folk art used to place significant importance upon a person, object or belief. A twist on the vintage Mexican Nicho found in antique shops, we will create a “nicho-esque” shrine (approximately 6”) using red earthenware clay.
Participants will learn traditional slab/hand building techniques. We will create small symbols of personal importance to place inside the nicho. Our creations will be complete with the addition of colored under glazes using various painting techniques . Participants are encouraged to bring sketchbook designs, images, and tools, but these are not necessary. All tools will be provided. (Because of time limitations, nichos will not be fired. Options for firing and completing nichos will be discussed in class.
