Are you interested in altering, but hesitant about to stepping out of your comfort zone? Erin Furimsky will help you push the boundaries of your creativity and knowledge base to create exciting new work. This will be a three-part, workshop-based class focused on throwing forms on the wheel and altering them. Altering thrown pots is an exciting way to create interesting work that stands out from the crowd, but making that first cut into a freshly thrown pot can be a little scary. Erin will help you discover the fun of deconstructing your work and putting it back together again!
This series of classes is for intermediate throwers and above. Each session will be workshop-based focusing on learning and exploring. During the three-week session there will be demonstrations, PowerPoints, paper cutting experimentation, and the careful exploration of example pots. Different types of throwing and altering will be addressed such as cutting and darting, throwing bottomless forms, and paddling.
Class size is limited to eight to allow for individual instruction time. Early registration is encouraged; seats typically sell out in advance. Student work is fired on-site by our ceramics studio assistant, allowing everyone to take home finished pieces.
