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.
