June: Understanding Glazes
Saturday and Sunday, June 22 & 23, 10-4, $125
In this workshop we will discuss the broad-ranging principles that apply to all glazes, focusing our experimentation on cone 6 oxidation studio glazes. We will also explore the role of the components of glaze and the use of glaze materials to adjust existing glazes or develop new ones. We will formulate glaze, add colorants, examine ways of testing glazes, and more. The workshop will include lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on experimentation with glazes in a casual atmosphere. With an overnight test firing we will be able to see and discuss some results the next day. This workshop is aimed at intermediate level ceramics students, such as those who are interested in knowing more about glazes or who are starting their own studios.
July: Adero Willard
Pots for Decoration, Decoration for Pots
July 6 & 7, 10am-4pm
$175 does not include firing fees
Create pots for your decoration, create decoration for your pots." In this workshop Adero Willard will present ways to bring together form and surface in a more personally intuitive way. The workshop will include hand-building and throwing demonstrations, along with an array of decoration techniques. Discussions may include idea generating, aesthetics, and studio practice methods.
A short hands-on portion of the workshop will provide time to practice the techniques of making and decorating, including guided surface and form exercises. The goal of these clay explorations is to initiate play and to stimulate curiosity in order to generate new ways to work with form and surface. "My goal is that participants will come away inspired and with a host of fresh ideas and skills to bring to their own work."
