This spring I'll be giving one-day workshops at the Dougherty Arts Center in Austin. Register over the phone at 512-974-4040. Fun times ahead! Below is the DAC press release:
Building with Original Textures Workshop
Monday $60 / 1 day 10 AM – 5 PM May 12, 2014
The goal of this hands-on workshop is to learn fun and interesting ways to incorporate your own unique textured surface into hand-built vessels. Students need to bring a few tactile objects (example: shells, kitchen utensils, random hardware) to create repeated texture into clay, which we will build into pots using variations on traditional techniques. Your favorite texture will become a personal tool as we create clay stamps that can be fired and used again and again. We will bisque fire your work for pick-up if you are not a current DAC student; current DAC students are welcome to glaze their work in their class. This workshop will meet for six hours with a scheduled lunch. Limit 12 students.
