Make your very own set of ceramic garden markers to identify your plants and add a pop of color to your bed or container! Join artist Dana DuMont for this workshop. Dana demonstrates how to make clay garden markers using stamps and hand building tools. Then, roll up your sleeves and make and customize up to eight markers for your own garden! Dana will fire the markers in her studio kiln and return them to the Garden. Clay, glaze and tools are provided. Bring any letter or other fun stamps you happen to have, along with a small metal bucket or terra cotta pot to decorate and hold your markers.

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are strongly encouraged for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.

About the Instructor

Dana DuMont works with varied media including digital images, collage, drawings, fibers, glass, and clay, and recently stepped back from full time teaching to expand her own studio practice. Elements of and connections to the natural world inspire her pieces and she regularly incorporates recycled, donated and found items into her works. She exhibits and sells her work regionally, her paint restoration of the RCA “Nipper” window is on view at The Smithsonian’s Museum of American History, and she continues her teaching, which like her artistic process, encourages creative risk-taking, perseverance, humor, reflection, and environmental stewardship. DuMont holds BFAs in Craft Materials and Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Master’s of Humanities with a concentration in art history from the University of Richmond. An avid traveler, she considers her ongoing art journeying to be her continuing studies program. More of her work can be seen here and at Studio DuMont.
