Clay Out West 2019

Here is my workshop description:
Birds In The Outback
You could be forgiven for thinking Australia is a vast expanse of “nothingness” full of red dirt and sheep or cattle. In fact, Australia is home to many beautiful birds. One of the rarest birds on this planet just happens to live in the Australian Outback – The Outback Polymer Pigeon. We’re going to attempt to replicate the amazing feathers from this bird which won’t be easy but, with guidance and a little bit of artistic creativity, I know we can do it.
I’ll be sharing a few different veneer techniques, incorporating silkscreening, stencils and foils. I’ll also share with you, my technique for constructing the feather and applying additional “art bits” to create a truly unique look. Finally, I’ll be demonstrating how to create a professional finish which will turn your feather from “ho-hum” to “woaw-yum”.
I sure hope you can join us!

I'll be teaching this year at The Great Create in Denver, United States on 11, 12 and 13 October. Lisa Lambright is organising this teaching event for me and knowing Lisa and her exceptional organisation skills...it's going to be awesome!! I've got 3 separate projects lined up (a different project for each day) and they are choc-o-block full of content. If you want to see what's on offer please contact Lisa via email at email@example.com and pop "Fabulous Debbie" as the subject line (oh and that was Lisa's subject line by the way haha).
A little bird also told me we may have a little Christi F bird popping in to say hi as well - too much fun for one little Aussie!!
