I am pleased to be returning to the awesome 2500 sq. ft. David Drake Studio at the Bascom Visual Arts Center in Highlands, NC for a 3 day demo workshop.
Traditional Techniques & Contemporary Practice: Pottery Pattern with Stamped & Painted Imagery
In this 3 day workshop I will demonstrate my surface design methods of stamped and carved inlay as well as hand painted patterns in wax resist. I will throw a variety of his forms and discuss my array of surface strategies. Participants will gain insights from the demonstrations into how they may use traditional techniques to form their contemporary work.
During the workshop participants will be lead through a couple of brief break-out hands-on exercises.
