Join me at my studio in Sacramento (SideCar Studios) for a three day intensive hands on workshop.
My demonstration and hands on teaching method will motivate you to experiment with new and old forms and methods of construction. My workshop and space is geared toward personal creative expansion, a process-over-product mentality. I encourage students to bring their enthusiasm for clay and desire for learning to the studio!
The demo will include coil and pinch methods to hard and soft slab construction to generate functional objects. Being in my studio you will also be able to see first hand the surface treatments I use to finish my work. Sandblasting demonstrations as well as being able to play with the equipment and see what the sandblasting game is all about!
My work is very much based in the tradition of functional ceramics. But a completely modern potter with contemporary themes in my work.We will explore the places to find inspiration and how abstract concepts make their way into my work. And how to foster similar insertion into your own creative practice.
All levels welcome - beginners to advanced students all will gain a new understanding of the makers process.
Housing and meals will be up to the participants to secure. Studio is very close to Downtown Sacramento, so AirBnB is an easy option and there are also lots of food options near by! If you have any questions please contact me for more information.
