Joanna's Upcoming Workshops
Open to All
Students of any skill and knowledge level.
Aug 26 - Sep 6, 2024
9AM - 5PM
Delve into the interplay of color relationships, collage techniques, and compositional elements in clay. Participants experiment with a diverse range of mason stains to develop their own personal color palette, explore formal elements to create movement and emphasis, and learn cold-finishing techniques. Participants create visually compelling, colorful ceramic collages that can be used in functional or sculptural works. Emphasis is on the fusion of ceramic practice with contemporary design principles, fostering a nuanced understanding of pattern, movement, and color. Through collaborative exploration and individual expression, attendees discover the unlimited potential of color and composition, adding depth and playfulness to their work.
