Marty Fielding, Tryptich, cone 3 red clay, 14 x 30 x 12 inches
Handbuilding: Source, Construction & Color
This workshop will explore slab building techniques for constructing functional pots. We’ll look at visual and conceptual sources—ceramic and nonceramic—as starting points for making personal work. Forming techniques will include paper templates, drop molds, and a variety of approaches to handles, lids, and spouts. Surface considerations will emphasize building depth for electric firing and harnessing the aesthetic and expressive potential of color. We’ll have daily demonstrations and group and one-on-one conversations with an emphasis on creative problem solving. Bisque fire only. All levels. Studio fee: $40. Code F01CB

Charity Hall, Scolopendra Bowl, copper, enamel,
2-3/4 x 2-3/4 x 1/2 inches
Larger surfaces provide more space for expression and exploration, so in this workshop we’ll begin by sinking copper bowls and other shallow forms to create larger “canvases.” Then we’ll fire multiple layers of enamel to build color, depth, and imagery. We’ll use liquid and powdered enamels as well as traditional and experimental enamel supplements. We’ll cover surface development from design and layout to fine finishing details, painting and drawing techniques, and freeform methods, opening unlimited possibilities. All levels. Studio fee: $45.

Woodcut: Between Black & White
Woodcut is one of the earliest of all printmaking methods. This workshop will introduce the novice to these woodcut techniques: surface preparation, image design and transfer, carving, tool maintenance, inking, and pressing the print. It will include different types of line carving demonstrations to show the use and execution of black and white lines in creating an image. Students will design their own images and can expect to complete a small edition of prints. All levels. Studio fee: $50. Code F01X
