In this two day workshop participants will work with artist Lauren Karle learning how pattern can reference culture; it can imply time and place. In this workshop we will slip transfer meaningful patterns onto slabs of clay. By experimenting with layers of prints, texture, painting, resist, slip trailing, and more our surfaces will be visually interesting and embedded with significance. Using our decorated slabs we will hand build pots by darting and seaming. Lectures about pattern and form development will allow each participant to expand their ideas. We will discuss how pattern and color can be used to enhance volume, merging surface and form.
The workshop will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 13th-14th from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm both days. Cost to attend the workshop is $390 Non-Member and $350 Member. Materials and lunch are included in the total cost.
Class size is limited therefore pre-registration is required. Registration deadline is Monday October 1, 2018.
