MARGARET BOHLS: Expressive Handbuilt Pottery

Volume is the key element of functional forms: it defines the potential for containment. During this workshop, students will learn how to create inventive volumetric pots using clay slabs. Margaret will present several strategies for going from flat to three dimensions, including using paper templates, creative cutting and darting of forms, and building in parts. Students will also explore the possibilities for surface embellishment using stamps, molds and sprigs to texture and adorn their work.

Course Fee: $650     Supply Fee: $0      Student Supply List: BOHLS_StudentSupplies2017
Tuition includes lunch and daily snacks. Prices are listed in Canadian dollars and include all applicable taxes.
