This is a 2-day workshop. Classes run 9-4pm with lunch included.
This weekend course focuses on making 3-dimensional clay wall tiles, with the natural beauty of the West Coast shoreline/majestic forest as the source of our inspiration as well as a source of our tools. Also explored will be the interpretation of the environment in which each student lives, and how to express that particular place through similar
methods with clay.
Each morning the class will go on short walks through the forests and shoreline collecting natural treasures such as bark, twigs, shells, rocks, ferns… These found “tools” can be used to texture and decorate the wall tiles. As well, the student will explore ways to enhance and finish the pieces with “store bought” and “homemade” underglazes. Attention will also be paid to the environment from where the student comes, with discussion of possible textures and images that might be used to depict their unique environment. Frames and mounting will also be briefly discussed.
Material fee includes supplies provided by instructor. See student supply list for further details.
