Light up your season with handbuilt fall garden inspired luminaries. We’ll cut, coil, piece and glaze clay to create unique votive candle holders. All supplies provided. If you have leaf stamps you would like to use on the clay, feel free to bring them along.

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Meet 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.
