What you'll do

When guests arrive they will have some time to choose from a variety of unfinished, handmade ceramic pieces with various price-points to decorate (options will include : hanging planter, table planter w/ tray, mini planter, and small bowl, etc.). Once they have chosen their first ceramic piece, they will receive a brief lesson on ways to decorate their item, and can then choose to paint, stencil, etch, and design the surface of their piece in any way they please using a selection of colors and supplied tools. If guests finish decorating their piece before the end of the hour, they are welcome to purchase another piece to decorate. Each item will have a different price point and an additional base fee of $5 per item for supplies/firing fees, and will be clear coat glazed and fired by the host. If those participating live out of town, they can pay to have their item(s) shipped once it has been fired. Local attendees can choose to pick-up their item by appointment. Guests will arrive and be given the option to purchase a drink from the venue's bar to enjoy while they spend some time in the studio during the venue's evening hours. All attendees will also be offered complimentary coffee, tea, or sparkling water. The studio has a gallery where all attendees will have a chance to shop for locally made art, gifts, and souvenirs from their experience by the hosting artist.

Learn more about Samantha

Samantha

I am a 9 year Asheville resident and working artist with my B.F.A. in studio art from Florida State University. Since moving to AVL in 2011 I've worked as a full-time ceramic and fine artist from a series of studios around town. I have finally found a new studio space to both work and share my love of art and ceramics with the community. Located in the back of a popular music venue in West Asheville, The Mothlight is where I produce artwork daily, host workshops, and have a small private gallery where guests can purchase my work. I love creating in a variety of media, including painting, printmaking, ceramics, and photography, and received a wonderful multi-disciplinary education which I still put into practice daily. I draw inspiration from the local landscape, folk art, and modern decor & design. Come create with me!
