Building Big…With A Small Kiln

June 9, 2019 – June 15, 2019

Andréa Keys Connell

During this workshop students will work in collaboration with each other and problem-solve on multiple large-scale ceramic sculptures. Demonstrations focus on hollow building techniques needed for pieces from one to nine feet tall. Participants will learn various solutions for cutting, firing and assembling their work post-firing. Epoxies, paints and various cold surface techniques are covered, including glazing. You will learn how to execute big ideas, no matter the size of your kiln. Open to all skill levels.
