Take Time To Play
June 17, 2018 – June 23, 2018
The focus of this workshop is for students to utilize the element of play to discover new forms and ideas within the context of utilitarian ceramics. Much like beginning with a set of building blocks, participants will make numerous simple forms to cut, alter, reassemble and construct new and inventive shapes. From these shapes, you will imagine and assign utility to your forms to create more refined, finished pots. Students will use both wheel throwing and hand building techniques in earthenware and bisque fire only. Students should have basic wheel throwing and hand building skills.
COURSE FEE: $525
