Ceramic Mask Workshop
Come and join the fun of creating a ceramic mask at LeMoyne with Nancy Jefferson!
This 6 hour will spend the first hours creating the mask and the last finishing it with colorful under-glazes. Once masks are dry they will be clear glazed and fired. Functional or decorative, entertaining and enriching, guaranteed to have a great time!
Please bring a lunch, water, and face mask for the class.
The studio will be equipped with hand sanitizers and masks will be available for those who do not have their own. We will also be practicing social distancing while creating. All tools will be sanitized prior to the workshop, and 2 air purifiers will be in service. Please note that due to the COVID-19 virus, workshop registration has been limited.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Nancy grew up riding bicycles, ice skating, and playing kick-the-can. She studied at the University of Kentucky between 1970 and 1975, collecting 120 credits in a diversity of subjects. Later, she refined her craft studying at Penland School of Crafts in 1979, 1981, and 1985 and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in 1991.
Nancy moved to Islamorada in the Florida Keys in 1978 where she apprenticed under Lee and Dorothy Shank for two years before becoming the resident potter at Plantation Potters for 24 years. In 2004 she moved her studio to the forest in Wakulla County, Florida.
Nancy is currently the resident potter at LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts in Tallahassee, Florida where she teaches, manages the ceramics studio, and creates her own work. She enjoys biking the local forest trails and kayaking the Gulf and area rivers.
Nancy’s nature-inspired ceramics are influenced by a childhood spent outdoors, the many skilled instructors she studied under, and the amazing environments in which she’s had the pleasure to live. Her work is often identified by her signature red dot.
