Participants learn how to create patterns and surface designs inspired by artworks in the Agnes Collection. Classes focus on exploring a variety of surface styles and hands-on pattern creation using simple  tools. In the final week, participants learn how to transfer their pattern to a ceramic plate. For all levels of experience.

To participate in this program, you will need access to a stable internet connection, a free Zoom account, a computer, laptop or tablet with a camera and microphone and a dedicated space to make art. A link to this session will be sent prior to the program.


Marney McDiarmid loves to teach and has facilitated workshops across the country. You can find her work online at Make and Do, and in person at galleries in Toronto, Ottawa, Almonte and Kingston.  Marney’s work has appeared in the Lark book 500 Prints on Clay and in the National Post. In 2017 she was awarded “Best in Show” at the FUSION Clay and Glass exhibit in Toronto, ON. She is a recent recipient of an Ontario Arts Council grant and traveled to Hawaii in the winter of 2020 to research a new body of work.
