Clay Summer Session 6

Everything & More

This workshop will cover the handbuilding techniques I use in the construction of earthenware figures and objects. Through demonstrations and guided, hands-on learning, I’ll cover every aspect of the process and provide prompts to promote the development of personal narratives as students create earthenware sculptures inspired by both experience and imagination. Techniques will include hollow handbuilt fabrication, simple methods for low-tech printing on clay, approaches to surface treatments, mixed media, and much more. Electric firing. All levels.
