Journey to Expressive Freedom with Paperclay
Come enjoy and advance your hands on ceramic art practice with a focus on contact with spirit of fresh improvisation and play. A guided symposium format with demonstration and discussion is balanced by retreat like time in the studio. Because the eternal spirit in masterpieces nearby call to be seen and felt we will also make time to study from them. And we will also see images of contemporary paperclay ceramic that could never be fired in traditional clay. Come ready to take the fast track forward to your own style of work and then give some of your inspirations a go- hands on with expert guidance in a supportive setting with enough time to integrate old and new. Bring your journals and sketchbooks.
My new book (below) is required reading before class starts at least two chapters of your choice. Bring it with you for adding notes.
Registration begins on Wednesday 19 March at 12 EST. Workshop fee includes clay studio and accommodation in the historical center of Rome. For information, costs and details please visit website link above. To register, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
