Shapeshifting Clay: Critters & Figures:
February 16-19, 2017
In this workshop students will learn to shift their thinking about pottery form, whether from the wheel or other techniques like coiling and slabs or combined techniques to how directly shape or alter those various forms into your favorite critters or the figures of your dreams or your realities. Emphasis on the fact that your imagination is your limitation. Daily demonstrations and hands on experiences. There will be daily, brief power point presentations of historical and contemporary examples of masterful ceramic sculptures.
