Ceramics: Hand-building, Symbolism & Form
Instructor: Angelique Scott
CLASS FULL; please join waitlist.
Practice slab hand-building techniques to create a variety of forms, and use tools and underglaze to embellish ceramic surfaces with texture, text, symbols, and more!
In this introductory ceramic hand-building workshop, we’ll look to the art on view in our galleries for inspiration as we consider the use of symbolism and form in contemporary art. Following a brief gallery walk-through, the teaching artist will guide students to draw from personal experience to develop language of symbols to apply to their hand-built artworks.
All works created during this program will be kiln-fired and clear-glazed for later pickup.
There will be a 30-minute lunch break, so please bring along a bagged lunch.
Level: All levels welcome
