All Levels $60-$110 Materials and Studio Fees* In this five-day workshop, Kensuke will demonstrate his coil building and other handbuilding techniques to construct a figurative sculpture using stoneware clay. We will build the “Rider,” combining multiple figures or objects and learning how to work form and surface to create your own narrative. Some handbuilding experience is necessary, and figure drawing experience helpful. Discussions will focus on anatomy, proportion, posture, and gesture along with glazing techniques. Facial features, hands, feet, and clothing will be added to animate the figures. Surfaces can be enhanced by texturing and detailing to create additional personal imagery. We will also create small samples and test tiles for experimentation using slips, underglazes, stains, and glazes to be fired as reference materials for future use after the workshop. *Materials and studio fees are charged to students based on studio usage and materials Touchstone is providing at the request of the instructor. Additionally, some instructors may also require that you bring certain materials and tools with you, in which case a list will be provided. Final cost of these fees will be posted two weeks ahead of the workshop to be paid in full prior to check-in.
