2:00 pm Ceramics Workshop with Allison Luce

Cost: $45, min 10 for enrollment

This workshop will explore surface design and treatments in clay. Using nature as inspiration, we will look at colors, textures and patterns from the environment and discuss how they can be incorporated into ceramic work. Hand-building skills will be presented as well as under glaze and oxide techniques. An artist talk about inspiration and methods will take place in the morning. This will be followed by time to explore and practice the new approaches in the afternoon. Multiple firing techniques will be discussed as we focus on how to layer oxides and under glazes to achieve atmospheric and painterly surface treatments. Participants should bring their own ceramic work as well as favorite tools and supplies. It would be beneficial to bring photographs, color swatches and items from nature to incorporate into their work.
