Tricks Of The Trade

October 15, 2017 – October 21, 2017

Deborah Schwartzkopf

The goal of this course is to set in motion the student’s ability to build complex forms of clay with simple parts. You will make basic templates and simple hump molds to shape slabs and combine thrown and altered forms to develop ceramic skills. As students puzzle these pieces together, the focus will be on expressive shapes. Slide shows and demonstrations will spark ideas and help you progress toward fluency with material. Discussions about surface, making it as an artist, and studio practice will round out the workshop. Participants will take home bisque ware and lots of new techniques to enliven their studio practice. Basic hand building and wheel throwing skills are helpful.



COURSE FEE: $525
