Jun 28 – Fri 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
June 29-30 – Sa-Su 9:00AM-4:00PM

This workshop will focus on throwing and altering with excursions into hand building. Using contrast as an overarching design principle, we will aim for making strong utilitarian forms and embellishing their surfaces to entice the user. Techniques involved include making and using insulating foam board molds, and forming lids, handles, and spouts. Specifically, daily demonstrations will cover cups, serving dishes constructed on slump molds, boxes, and pouring vessels. The application of texture, inlay, terra sigillata, slip, resists, and glazes will be used to explore unconventional approaches to the earthenware surface. Topics of discussion will be origination of ideas, supportive critiques, and sustainability in ceramics. Participants will experience numerous techniques to use as points of departure in their own work upon their return home. $140 Resident / $152.00 Non-Resident
