Fall Clay Intensive
September 12 - 16
Monday - Friday
9am - 3pm
In this workshop we will explore hand-building skills, personal form development, and the use of paper clay. Demonstrations will include clay preparation, building techniques, surface and color, firing and non-firing options; all to achieve qualities of translucency, weightlessness and building ease. Participants will be encouraged to develop individual ideas and conceptual directions exploring the rigor of personal development and one’s individual voice. The workshop will be balanced between demo watching and studio construction time. All skill levels welcome.
