Masters Workshop: Alison Palmer-BOXES-Demo/Slideshow

$250 members/$325 non-members

Demo workshop, slide show, refreshments and lunch both days.

This is a two-day demo-only workshop. Alison will show the different ways that she makes her boxes using coils and slabs. She will demonstrate her methods for making the lids, handles, feet, and knobs, or her animal handles. Alison will also show how she textures the slabs before the construction starts.  Participants will have the opportunity to make small texturing tools while watching the demonstrations. The workshop will be two wonderful days of imparted technical advice as well as great conversation. There will also be a power point presentation of Alison's journey with clay from her early days running a production studio to her one of a kind soda and wood fired pots to her experimental firings in Mexico.

Master Workshop: Kristen Keiffer

Master of The Art with Kristen Keiffer

July 16-19

10 AM - 4 PM

at The Clay Art Studios

$450 - Members

$550 - Non-Members

Elegant & Ornate: Form & Surface

Our workshop will focus on altering wheel-thrown (or hand-built) forms a little and a lot. We will then embellish those forms with an array of decoration techniques from stamping and slip-trailing to sponging and resists. The result can be functional or sculptural, minimal, or extravagant.  You will leave the workshop with a collection of new skills and the confidence to play and draw from your own influences. You will also take home a grouping of bisqued stamps and pieces showing your explorations for the week.

Demonstrations include throwing, altering and building off the wheel, darting, and a variety of decoration techniques including: slip-trailing, stamp-making, and stamping. We will discuss aesthetics and proportion, timing in clay, idea-generation, progressing one’s own work with learned techniques, and studio ergonomics.

This workshop and its techniques are equally suitable for both throwers and hand-builders.

Basic wheel-throwing and/or hand-building skills necessary.
