Creating Ceramic Lattices

$700.00

Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $650
Material Fee: $50

In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to create ceramic lattice screens which investigate repeating and tessellating pattern. These forms are made by press molding clay into plaster air-release molds to create thin, decorative structures. The forms may be used to make lattice screens, perforated bowls, and many more sculptural or functional objects.  Digital methods may be discussed but the class will be based on hands-on work. Hand building experience in clay is suggested but the course is open to all skill levels.

Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day

Registration will open in early December. Please check back for updated information and cost.
