Adventures in Clay
Instructor: Natasha Dikareva
Description: Two-day workshop. Natasha Dikareva will share her process of forming otherworldly creatures, blending mythology, contemporary elements and imagination into a sculptural ceramic object. During the first day she will demonstrate different clay hand-building techniques. On the second day, the main focus will be on surface treatments. The ceramic surface will be approached as a canvas, using slips, underglazes and the sgraffito technique to create vibrant, dynamic surfaces of visual storytelling. Participants will also have the ability to practice post-glaze techniques such as china painting. For this purpose, students are encouraged to bring bisque-ware to experiment on. Dikareva will work with students to help them develop personal iconography, symbols and forms that are significant and meaningful. Participants will come away with work that reflects their own unique experience and a deeper understanding of the clay process. All levels are welcome!
Each student will receive a 25 lb bag of clay. Bisque firing is included.
Schedule: April 22 and April 23, 2023. 10am to 4pm.
Pricing: $275 payable via Check or Credit Card
