Hand-Illustrated Erotic Plate

Grab some friends and a bottle of wine and join me for a night of artistic exploration! Each student will get a pre-bisque fired ceramic plate handmade by yours truly. We will use transfer paper, slip, glaze, vintage and feminist porn, my original illustrations and your own work to compose hand-painted erotic plates. I will then fire to temp and they will be available to pick up the following week.  Only 8 spots available per class.

co-hosted erotic plate painting series

2019 CO-HOSTED EROTIC PLATE WORKSHOP SERIES

Starting in 2019 I will be holding co-hosted Erotic Plate Workshops with local Chicago makers, activists, educators, sex-workers, artists, writers and more to dive a little more deeply into pleasure rituals. The class will be slightly longer and include a casual salon-style Q&A between the host and myself as we explore topics together. None of the participants will be required to share, it is all voluntary. For each class we will be collaborating on a small collection of topic-related artwork to be painted on the plates.
