While enjoying peak autumn foliage, students in this workshop learn about coil/slab and press-molded approaches to sculpting the human head. Since the class is during Halloween, participants can consider “all things creepy” for their creation. Various methods of producing ceramic surfaces are demonstrated including slip application, stencils, stamps and multi-firing. You should bring to class a collection of your interests in a sketchbook/scrapbook or laptop images. Participants may take their finished green-ware home, or have it fired post workshop. Students should have a good working knowledge of hand building. Costumes are optional. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
