Building BIG!…with a small kiln
Students in this workshop will problem-solve on multiple, large-scale ceramic sculptures. Demonstrations will focus on the hollow-building techniques needed to make pieces from one- to nine-feet tall. Students will learn various solutions for cutting, firing, and assembling their work post-firing. We’ll cover epoxies, paints, and various cold surface techniques, including glazing. You’ll learn to execute big ideas, no matter the size of your kiln. All levels. Lower clay studio.
