The Layered Surface

With Renee LoPresti

Rescheduled for August 22nd and 23rd

10am - 4pm daily

In this two day workshop, we will focus on developing surface composition by layering underglazes and glaze directly onto leatherhard clay. Custom paper and reusable die-cut vinyl stencils will be used to create layered patterns, shapes, and detailed imagery. Students will be able to explore these techniques directly onto their own wheel-thrown or hand-built surfaces. The techniques and materials used during this workshop have the flexibility to be fired to any temperature/atmosphere.

$250 includes instruction, materials and a great lunch each day!

Throw and Glow

With Rob Sheldon

Come enjoy a full circle clay experience. During this two hour class you will learn to throw on the potter's wheel and participate in a raku firing. After glazing bisque ware made by local artists, students will get their hands dirty on the potter's wheel. After the kiln is cooled you will take the finished pieces as a keepsake. This hands on class offers someone with no prior pottery experience an opportunity to take part in all facets of the ceramic process.
