June 16 - 21, 2024

Workshop at a glance

This workshop will merge analog and digital processes to tell the story of place through plants. The workshop will begin with an exploration of personal inspiration. Wheel-throwing demonstrations will prompt discussions on how to create unified, layered, nature-inspired surface designs on pottery. Decorative techniques will include the creation of paper masks, foam texture tools, silk screens, and vinyl resist patterns. This class will also offer participants a brief introduction to using design software and cutting machines in the ceramic studio; however, all techniques covered will be adaptable to low-tech applications. Students will walk away with an awakened sense of exploration and collaboration with nature in the studio.
