April 4 & 5, 11am-6pm.
In this two day hands-on workshop, Shiyuan Xu will take you on a deep dive into working with paper clay and gloopy glazes. Paper clay can be an important tool in the ceramicist's bag of tricks. Shiyuan will discuss her own work and the pros and cons of working with this material. She will then demonstrate a variety of ways the material can be used and help students try out these techniques. Similarly, Shiyuan will discuss how we can use glazes to not just decorate or cover our work but as a sculptural component in our work. This workshop is all about pushing our materials to their limits, we hope you'll join us.
