Playful Pots: Two-Day Hands-On Ceramics Workshop!!

Students will learn new ways of working with soft clay both on and off the wheel. Chandra will show how to design unique and personal pottery forms using simple and inexpensive materials, such as plywood and craft foam. In addition to hand building, Chandra will share techniques used to alter wheel-thrown work and to create multiple parts for building narrative pots.
Students will learn to energize the clay surface through imagery and pattern. Chandra will demonstrate techniques for freehand drawing, direct image transfer, under glaze inlay, sgraffito, and the use of slip, wax, and under glaze to create a layered and colorful surface. The workshop will provide a balance between theoretical and technical concerns of communicating a visual message through pottery. Chandra will emphasize the importance of play, as process, in pushing work forward.
Students will have time each day to try out the methods introduced. This workshop will be suitable for beginning to advanced hand building or wheel throwing students. Although the techniques and discussion will be focused on pottery, the workshop will be valuable for any student striving to develop a more cohesive relationship between form and surface in their own clay work.
