A Terra Cotta That Grows
May 31, 2020 – June 6, 2020
During this workshop students will make their own chia form using terra cotta. By learning and sharing tips and tricks in handbuilding, participants will be encouraged to create their own physical terra cotta form around the idea of their own mythology. During class you will discover that you are a complex creature and the sum of many things, including beliefs, visual culture and your surrounding environment. This class is for students with cross interests in clay, horticulture and experimentation. Intermediate experience level is necessary.
COURSE FEE: $600
