Mastering Form and Design
July 28, 2019 – August 3, 2019
Technique is often a distraction to the importance of good form. In this workshop students learn about design elements including scale, form, balance and proportion, along with the golden mean and the geometry of design. You will visualize these through the turning process. Participants will also discover how to critique, evolve, and learn from the experience. Methods to create better form can be a difficult step in evolving your work to the next level. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $800
