Max 12 students
This Term Three class is held on Sunday afternoons from 2.00pm to 5.00pm for nine weeks. Starts Sunday 26 July and finishes on Sunday 20 September 2020.
For this course you will need:
Your toolkit, an apron, an old towel, a microfibre cloth or handtowel, a sponge and a notebook/art journal or your ideas. Clay and tools are available for purchase during class or at the shop.
Throughout the course Erin will help you to explore:
- source material: the art and necessity of looking and recording (digital/drawing/painting)
- scale and form (developing an idea, complex curves, energy lines).
- The focus of the course is on developing your skills and understanding of the three basic forms of handbuilding: pinching, coiling and slab building. You will learn techniques for making refined, strong and resolved pots and or sculptures of your own design. If you are seeking inspiration and guidance to develop your personal style, Erin will guide you through a series of structured activities to bring your ideas to life. If you are already full of ideas, she will provide you with the technical knowledge and skills needed for you to achieve your goals.
