CLAY FALL WEEKEND SESSION
October 20–22, 2023
Contain Your Enthusiasm
This process-oriented workshop will focus on slab-constructed ceramics whose function is to contain: cups, bowls, plates. Students will be guided through the building process from drawings to paper patterns to assembling components in earthenware. We’ll incorporate various elements including feet and rims and will use familiar and unconventional tools for building and decorating. Topics will include slump and drape molds, sgraffito, and stencils. Students will leave with a number of fully-formed vessels, however, in this short time frame, we won’t be glazing or firing. This is a beginning level workshop that is also suitable for experienced students who want to learn new methods or hone their skills. Lower clay studio.
