Storytelling with Robert Harrison: China Paint and Ceramic Decals on Porcelain Workshop

Come spend some time with Montana Ceramic Artist Robert Harrison at PGSMOA.

Bring your own small selection of vintage or collected porcelain objects or dishes and turn them into individualized pieces of ceramic art!! Let your imagination run wild!! We supply the china paint and ceramic decals. By applying black ceramic china paint and then layering the ceramic decals onto the surfaces, you will transform an already glazed and fired piece into your own individualized work of ceramic art!

*all participants are encouraged to bring 2-6 pieces of their own or thrifted porcelain whites
