Explore the relationship between texture and color in this one day, two part workshop. Using layered clay slip techniques you will create a unique work of art! The morning session will consist of students creating a slab rolled plate, bowl or set of coasters. In the afternoon session, students will investigate decoration, drawing, imagery, and narrative. Through discussion, demonstration, and collaboration, we hope to awaken new possibilities in all of our work! The only prerequisite is a willingness to have fun and embrace the deliberate awkwardness of finding oneself in unknown territory. Work will be fired and clear glazed by the instructor and available for pick up two weeks later. Taught by Victoria Schmidlapp. Should the COMO need to cancel a class, a makeup date will be observed. Makeup dates will not be observed in the case of a participant's inability to attend class.
