Make your drawings come to life.

The Edge Village and Gallery, located at 210-611 Main St., is offering a "Ceramic Sculpture for the Illustrator" workshop on Sun., Oct. 27 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Led by The Edge’s programs co-ordinator, Jes Coverini, the three-hour course will teach budding artists how to turn their sketches into ceramic sculptures.

"It’s specifically geared towards people who know how to draw really well or at least decently, and want to be able to turn their drawing skills into three-dimensional pieces," says Coverini, 23, a ceramic sculpture and portrait artist.

"Everyone will end up with at least one finished sculpture, but we’re aiming for three finished sculptures in that time."

Three sculptures might sound like a lot for a first-timer, but Coverini says ceramics is all about multi-tasking.

"There’s a lot of wait time when you’re doing carved sculptures, and those wait times are turned into a really productive process," Coverini says. "While you’re waiting for something to dry, you can start on a second piece, and while you’re waiting for that second one to dry, you’re starting on a third piece. By the time you’re done step one on the third piece, you’re ready for step two on the first piece."

The cost for the workshop is $55, which includes all supplies and firing costs. For more information or to register, call (204) 260-0756 or email workshops@edgevillage.com
