RCS Teaching Hands-On Workshop @ Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts

Material and Culture: Interactive and Influential Design in Pottery

Cheyenne and I will be teaching a week-long workshop at the extraordinary, awe-inspiring, amazing Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, TN this fall, October 14 – 20, 2018. We are planning an awesome workshop! Follow the link below for all the registration information. And yes…the baby will be with us. So come to get your hands dirty, learn stuff and see a cute baby. That’s a win, win, win!

“This team-taught workshop focuses on making special-use objects for historical and odd functions and how those objects identify and personify culture. Students learn methods for making and exploring techniques for idea development, and discussing issues of presentation with functional pottery. You will experience a balance of personal research exploration, demonstrations, and experimentation with building and decorating at the greenware stage. Discussions include the cultural significance of personal influences, with brainstorming exercises focusing on sourcing content for creative expression. This course is great for investigating ideas and is helpful to students hoping to enhance their work with cleverly engineered details. You will leave class with a wealth of information to take to your home studios, where you can complete the work using your own glazes. Open to all skill levels, although some clay experience is helpful and encouraged.
