Clay and Fire

Saturday and Sunday, March 10 and 11, 11-5

This 2-day workshop will explore traditional and contemporary handbuilding approaches in ceramics and raku firing. In the studio, instruction on a range of hands-on techniques will allow participants to make their own unique forms in clay; experimentation and play being encouraged. We will go beyond technique to examine inspiration, and how and why we create meaning in our work. Participants will be given pre-bisqued slab forms/tiles to design with glazes, oxides, lusters, pattern and imagery, which we will ‘raku’ fire. This workshop will include idea generation, collaboration, discussions, and slide presentations on traditional and modern ceramics and kilns of Japan and Nepal.
