Arlene Borow handbuilding in clay

Arlene Borow as our demo Artist at our next meeting, Wednesday November 19, 2014 at 1PM at the Craft Gallery. Arlene is a graduate of Rutgers in Camden and is a well-known figurative artist who has won many awards throughout her career.

Please remain a member in good standing so you may enjoy all or some of the workshops we are planning for this year.

We started the year off with hands on “Hand” workshop on October 8th, presented by Joan Carew. It was a huge success with many lovely hands made.


November is a jurying month. We ask those who wish to be juried into the Ceramic League to please bring 5 pieces of work on November 18th so our Board can review them and jury them in.

In February we will have Mitch Lyons as our guest for a two day workshop on creating mono-prints on clay. This is limited to 10 people at a cost of $200 per person. We are currently taking payment for this and have only one or two spaces left.

In March Meagan Chaney will be here for a two day workshop on creating pods and demonstrating her gorgeous techniques for surfaces. This will be limited to 12 people at a cost of $125 per person. Four or five spaces left.

Craft Galley is having Kirsten Stingle back for an advanced 3 day workshop on the FULL figure March 2,3,4, 2015. The cost is $450 for non-members and $425 for CLPB members. We will be incorporating an antique item into this piece so keep that in mind while you are out at the wonderful antique shows Florida has this time of year.

We are having the CLPB Holiday Exhibition Show & Sale again this year. This will be the first time we will be having it at the Artisans on the Ave Gallery, 630 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth. It will enable us to have it for a longer period of time and the foot traffic will be so much better.
