Structure and Form: Ornamental Lattices
August 12, 2018 – August 18, 2018
How does pattern, ceramics and architecture intersect within contemporary craft? In this workshop students create ceramic lattice screens which investigate repeating and tessellating patterns. You will work with press molding clay into plaster air-release molds to create thin, decorative structures. By making these screens, participants use an industrial process to express their own personal voice. Digital methods may be discussed, but the class emphasizes hands-on work. Experience in clay is suggested, but the course is open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
