July 8 - 12
This workshop, focused on alternative hand-building methods, will expand the participant's vocabulary of form and surface. Students will design, construct and use molds and stencils to create pots with generous, playful volume and crisp, low-relief surfaces. Pickett will share building techniques (using clay from soft to leather-hard), and will discuss philosophies of making and studio practice. Topics will include: relationships between form & surface; function & utility; and generating interest through contrast. Participants of any skill level will leave with information and techniques they can apply to their own work.
Space is limited to 10 students.
