Taught by two renowned artists, this two-week intensive workshop uses simple techniques to explore freedom of ideas and process. Students elevate the quality and content of their ceramic work through the distinct lens of each of the instructors. John Gill shares his articulated approach to building and glazing by guiding the creation of vessels from soft clay slabs through darting and paper patterns. Andrea Gill imparts her expertise on surface patterning and layering of glazes to help you add depth to your work. Learn the application process of transferring two-dimensional imagery onto three-dimensional surfaces, and leave with a variety of works and a comprehensive understanding of the craft.
