Clay Creators: Handbuilding
Date & Time:
Saturdays, October 17-December 12, 2015
For many visual artists, it is not a matter of if you can make something, it is a matter of how. I truly believe that "if there is a will there is a way" and I strive to inspire my students to have the confidence to tackle any project.
I graduated from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2002 with a Bachelors degree in Visual Art. My focus was dominated by ceramics because I found that it encompassed the widest range of artistic expression. I could sculpt, carve, screen print and paint without changing mediums. I went on to work at the Gallery of BC Ceramics, where I was inspired by all the incredible talent and happily spent my pay checks on hoards of beautiful pieces. I continue to collect ceramics in my travels but as I learned on a flight home from Australia, fourteen hours is a long time to hold a three-tiered cake plate in your lap.
Adult Class: This class is for beginners and intermediate artists who wish to create a variety of ceramic pieces without the use of a potters' wheel.
This class will cover numerous dish making processes as well as many interesting surface techniques.
