4 Week Slip-Casting Workshop
In this course you will carve an original design from throw-away clay. I will then show you how to make multiples of 4-6 by creating a plaster mold, slip-casting into them, adding embellishments like handles or decorative elements and then glazing and firing. It's a great process for making matching holiday gifts or a personal dinnerware set, and the predominant process I use for my ceramic work.
The classes will be 2.5 hours and you will have access to additional studio hours. 6 spots available per class at $140.
Class 1: Concept and create the original (ideas: hanging planter, dinner plates or vase for gifts or personal)
Class 2: Create plaster mold
Class 3: Pour molds and add handles and extra embellishments
Class 4: Paint and Glaze
The times available are:
Wednesday Nights: 6:30-9

Hand-Illustrated Erotic Plates
Grab some friends and a bottle of wine and join me for a night of artistic exploration! Each student will get a pre-bisque fired canopy plate handmade by yours truly. We will use transfer paper, slip, glaze, vintage and feminist porn, my original illustrations and your own work to compose hand-painted erotic plates. I will then fire to temp and they will be available to pick up the following week. Only 8 spots available, 2 classes!
