CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 26 - May 2, 1996 - 57 Rehoboth Art League launches May craft and literary workshops A wide variety of workshops - in basic pottery principles, begin- ning woodcarving, creative writ- ing and art jewelry making by some of Rehoboth Art League's most versatile and talented teach- ers - will take place in early May. A professional potter for 20 years, Mary McDonough will teach an extensive workshop on "Basic Pottery Principles" for all skill levels in 10 sessions from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., on Mon- days and Tuesdays, May 6 through June 4. McDonough, who has her own studio, Black- bird Pottery near Smyrna, has also found many opportunities to spread the love of her craft by teaching or demonstrating in many venues such as public schools, colleges, museums and Rehoboth Art League. A frequent participant in prestigious juried regional shows such as the Brandywine Arts Festival, McDo- nough's work can be found in sev- eral fine retail galleries such as the Tideline Gallery of Rehoboth Beach, Nature's Touch of Lewes, and RAL. McDonough's students will work on the potter's wheel and learn to glaze. They will also do work with the slab rolls and learn to make tiles and jewelry. Partici- pants should wear old clothes and bring any pottery tools if they have them. Tuition is $125 for members and $135 for non-mem- bers, plus at $35 materials fee paid directly to RAL. Another long-term artisan and popular teacher, Joseph Santange- 1o of Cool Spring, will conduct a Beginning Woodcarving course on three Tuesdays, May 7, 14 and 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Santangelo, who started whittling when he was nine and was a skilled carpenter for 25 years, turned to carving as a means of in- come during the recession in the early 90s. His fanciful birds, which are influenced by the Frak- tur paintings of Pennsylvania Dutch, have become well-known and acclaimed throughout the Maryland, Delaware and Pennsyl- vania region. Participants of all skill levels will start this workshop learning about knife safety and how to sharpen a knife. Then students will begin carving on a "whittling stick" of seasoned wood that will be carved as simply or intricately as desired. Chip carving will fol- low, which involves cutting geo- metric designs on a flat piece of wood. The last class will intro- duce three-dimensional carving. The cost of the class is $40 for members and $50 for non-mem- bers plus a $5 material fee paid to the instructor the first day of class. Tools needed include a utility knife or pen knife and a sharpen- ing stone for the first session. A set of six carving tools (two gouges, two straight cuts and two angle cuts) and a metal compass is required for the last two sessions. Santangelo will repeat the workshop on June 25, July 2 and 9 in which he encourages teenagers 14 and older to take the class along with a supervising adult. Multi-talented poet Bob Sven- son of Dagsboro will introduce an evening "Creative Writing" work- shop from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., Tuesdays, May 7, 14 and 21.
