Explore ceramic form and finish in an exciting intensive workshop for the advancing ceramicist. Three days of hands-on instruction includes throwing / hand-building and altering bowl, cylinder and teapot forms, glaze techniques including spraying and layering low- and mid-fire glazes, and more. This workshop includes a field trip with special guided tour of the San Antonio Museum of Art ceramics collection.
Learn the hand building and wheel work required to delve into your fascination with clay. Participants will develop a perspective on proportions from large to small, while the nature of “play” within whimsical form will always be in the foreground.
This workshop is a time for play. Our playground features three forms and a dazzling palette of glaze techniques designed to bring your forms to completion.
