Slippery: Analog 3D Printing In Clay
October 4, 2020 – October 10, 2020
During this workshop students will discover lip trailing, traditionally a decorative surfacing process in ceramics, as the foundation for building sculptural form. Students interested in seeing linear drawing emerge from flatness or in exploring a handmade, manual, low-tech version of digitally designed and mechanically produced 3D prints will enjoy this new-but-old technique. From making the paper clay slip, developing blueprints, and making plaster matrices to engineering, construction, risk taking, coloring, firing, and presenting small pieces, participants will pause, learn between the lines, and examine their personal vocabularies. Open to all skill levels, however basic knowledge of ceramics is helpful.
COURSE FEE: $600
