Join Wes and Malia for a collaborative workshop with hands on demonstrations!
The workshop will begin with lectures discussing the broader applications of their process, followed by concurrent demonstrations. Wesley will use larger press molds to construct an animal totem while Malia will construct flower and plant forms in paper clay to be added to the totem toward the end of the demonstration. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the hands on demonstration and work alongside each artist. Use of press molds, ceramic sculpting techniques and how to approach working with paper clay will all be covered…. plus so much more! Join us for the fun.
Handbuilding, Surfacing & Play…Oh My!
taught by Didem Mert
Non Student Rate $75
Student Rate $60
Join Didem Mert for a one day Lecture and Hands-on Demonstration!
Put a childlike sense of PLAY back into your clay practice with visiting artist instructor Didem Mert (she/they)! Those with some clay experience are all welcome for this “handy” workshop. Didem will teach participants how to make slab build vessels, over three different handle designs, coil and pinched and paddled large coil vessels, jewelry and more! Oh, you thought we were only going to learn constructing and building techniques in this workshop? Guess again! Didem will also show participants how to use underglazes, stencils and more to create one of a kind surfaces that POP and feel alive! Participants should bring one bisqued piece to try out different surfacing techniques and materials during the workshop. Come play in clay!
