WEEK LONG HANDS-ON WORKSHOP - all materials and firing included
Working with low-fire red earthenware and terra sigillata, this workshop will mainly focus on soft slab construction while considering how stamped patterns enhance the surface. Some pieces will be created by pinching, folding, and draping thin slabs over molds, while others will start with simple paper templates. A variety of forms will be demonstrated including serving pieces, vases, sculptural bowls, and wall pieces. We will make several special texturing tools to be used during the workshop. Lively discussion will focus on sharing ideas, studio practices and making good aesthetic decisions while creating a pot. No prior clay experience is necessary, but may be helpful.
