One Day Workshop- September

95.00

One Day Workshop at Rat City Studios
Making and Using Bisque Molds

Date: Saturday, September 23rd, 2017
Hours: Morning 9am-12:30   |   Lunch 12:30-1:00   |   Afternoon 1:00-5:00pm

Join this pottery making workshop at Rat City Studios. Shape slabs with molds!  We will build our own molds by coiling clay into simple abstract shapes. These will be used green and then if you enjoy it- take it home and bique it to use it again and again. I will have one finished mold on hand for each person to experiment with as well. This will allow us to try out new techniques in greater depth in this one day intensive. Come explore bowls made with slabs and hump molds!

Your class fee of $95 will include one bag of JG Porcelain, which we will use during the workshop. Additional clay may be purchased. You may take the items you make home (there will not be a bisque firing). There will be handouts to take home and lots of ideas to help you continue your journey in clay. Infuse your studio practice with new techniques.  To get the most out of this class, you need to be able to readily throw or hand build a five inch tall cylinder or higher. Come ready to push the limits of what you know.  Build your clay working skills!
