This is a 2-day workshop. All classes run 9 – 4 pm each day with lunch included from 12 – 1 pm.
This weekend workshop is about cultivating a habit of intention and applying this to your throwing practice. When one sits down at the wheel, we often allow the clay to decide what it wants to reveal. This can be a productive place to initiate inspiration, but where do you go once you find a form you want to cultivate?
Throwing with intention enables you to produce consistent forms, to which you can add your individual, creative voice. Over two days, this workshop will focus on exploring the elements of clay that permits us to mold and shape it; the mechanics of the wheel and how it enables our bodies to become instruments of design; and how to bring these technical practices together with the less tangible: your creativity.
These concepts will be addressed through techniques in wedging, centering and throwing foundational shapes. An introduction to journaling as a method to facilitate the creative flow will also be incorporated.
This price includes: tuition, daily lunch, material fees (if required), any applicable taxes and is listed in Canadian Dollars.
