Led by ceramic artist Taylor Robenalt, this workshop will focus on components of the human figure and demonstrate the intricacies of constructing flora and fauna. Students will focus on technical components within their work, including how to achieve crisp lines and clean, tight surfaces by using simple tools. Taylor will personally meet with each student and aide in exploration of skills and new ideas, concluding with an informal critique at the end of the workshop. Get excited for a weekend filled with information about clay with a porcelain pro!
Taylor has provided a recommended tool list, which will be provided to students prior to October 6, and attendees will be allowed to sample tools and purchase them at the workshop. All clay, firing, and instruction are included in the workshop. Lunch included.
