Instructor: Mary Barringer
September 11 - 15
9am - 3pm
5 sessions

Sometimes you need to try something completely new in the studio, and sometimes you need to probe and develop an idea already in the works. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to do either, or both. Demonstrations, creative exercises, and plenty of one-to-one conversation will allow people to use the concentrated time to enliven and deepen their work. The workshop will include a mid-range electric firing, and all forming methods will be accommodated. Some experience in clay helpful.
