This clay making and raku workshop includes two sessions. (Limit 12)
SESSION ONE: Ceramic Quilt Making!
Participants make a small quilt of 9 pieces, (each 6" by 6" in size) as well as 2-3 extra pieces. The extra pieces become the "Community Quilt", which will be displayed at the Stifel Fine Arts Center. Templates and design ideas will be facilitated with step-by-step instruction.
SESSION TWO: After work completed in the first session is bisque-fired, the second session includes applying glazes and firing in the ancient method of Japanese Raku that entails immediate and mysterious results. The class culminates with the act of tying together the quilt pieces.
