Please join me on March 7, for this one day, hands-on workshop at Eye of the Dog Art Center:
Handbuilding – texture and form in slab-built clay
Terry Buck and I will be teaching this workshop together – it’s gonna be tons of fun for all levels! Construct your own texturing tools using everything from firebrick to flip flops; learn some new construction methods; take home lots of fresh ideas!
When: March 7, 2010; 10:00am to 4:00pm
Where: Eye of the Dog Art Center, San Marcos, TX
Cost: $125.00 (includes lunch and all materials + firing – see below)
Materials: all materials for the one day workshop will be provided
- the clay: Longhorn Red
- texture tools : workshop participants will construct tools for creating texture in clay, using everything from firebrick to flip flops
Firing: firing is included in the cost of the workshop. (The red earthenware that we will use for the workshop has a firing range from cone 06 to cone 1. Participants with access to this firing range may wish to fire their own work.)
Lunch: Eye of the Dog Art Center is famous for their fabulous food and delicious lunches.Yum!
In addition to the tools that workshop participants will be able to take away with them, we will construct some 3-D “sketches” using red earthenware. Here’s a peek at some of the forms and textures that workshop participants will use as a springboard for their own inspired work in clay.
