Ceramics one-week immersion workshop

Type: Residencies, Workshops, Exchanges [View all]
Deadline: Mon, June 4th, 2018

Immerse yourself! This one-week intensive workshop allows you to focus entirely on learning a new skill. Each workshop is led by a well-known professional in her or his field. This class is geared toward professionals and highly experienced amateurs. 


 Topic: Uncanny Animal Heads
Explore the narrative, emotional, and conceptual potential of the animal head in clay. Throughout this process, we will draw inspiration from personal experience, archetypes, and observations in the natural and manufactured world. Beginning with small head studies, we will translate these into life-sized or half scale animal heads. Discover Lindsay’s building methods, including solid construction with pipe armature, slab building, and sculpting facial features. Learn about mixed media and ‘cold’ surfaces, display mounts and stands, firing in sections, and rejoining.
