Brief History of Ceramics Class with Nick Fletcher- "Imitate, Assimilate, Innovate!"
Look at and learn about ceramics starting at the earliest known all the way to contemporary makers. The work of every ceramic artist is influenced by the
art of the past. There is much to draw from, and the more you know of
ceramic history, the more informed your choices in steering your own style
and concept. Through the class we will have a series of slides exploring the
history of ceramics world-wide and discussions. Choose projects from
prompts of loosely-defined assigned studio projects associated with our
study of ceramic history - or come up with your own.
$250 includes instruction and a reserved open studio day for all participants, 25 lbs. of clay, glazes and firing of up to 10 pieces. Class limited to 8 participants.
