Figurative Sculpture w/Raku Finish
Lorri's three-day workshop will present participants with a new way of working with clay. Using fiberclay (regular ceramic clay with special fibers added to it), she teaches skills and techniques that encourage fragile and elongated forms that are often regarded as impossible to make and fire. The class will culminate in an actual Raku firing during which your piece will be fired so that you will leave class with your finished sculpture. Fun, hands-on and experimental, Lorri will teach you the concepts and techniques and then allow you to 'go for it' , opening your mind to a new way of working with clay.
TUITION: $375 + $25 Firing Fee due at time of workshop.
Payment Options: Students may pay in full or choose the payment-plan option during registration. The payment plan requires a non-refundable $100 deposit with the balance due 30 days before the first day of the workshop.
