This two day workshop will teach you to capture an essence of a plant in clay. Experiment with tile: cut, fold, stretch, squish, slap, scrape to get a desired and distinct botanical element.
Day 1: Consider your personal style and the attitudes, location and personally of your subject. Hand make leaves, sticks + flowers, but perhaps how you could not have imagined.
Day 2: Explore assemblage techniques including pre and post firing options. Work to curate composition by seeing many iterations with the same components.
This class will be focusing on wet clay work. You will have to take your work home to be fired.
Prices are listed in Canadian Dollars and include daily lunch/snacks, relevant materials fees and any applicable taxes
Bridget Fairbank is a relentless maker. Her ceramics connects utilitarian pottery, installation, performance and painting: asking a viewer to engage bodily in an idea. Her art pieces work to implicate and empower a viewer through sensory enjoyment often including taste, touch and smell. These qualities are exemplified in her recent MFA exhibition Foodscapes: From Seed to Mouth, at the University of Florida.Click here to read more about BRIDGET FAIRBANK
