Dancing Hands Arch
Jeff Margolin has been carving clay for 50 years, as an occupation and passion. In this workshop, participants will be exploring a variety of approaches, clays, and tools of the trade. There will be plenty of time to work on individual projects, as workshop participants are encouraged to bring leather hard pieces suitable for carving and design concepts to work on - yet there will be clay forms prepared and plenty of designs for carving as well.
Participants will explore historical and cultural aspects of carving and work on generating their own designs and how those designs can be realized in clay. Bring your sketchbooks, and be prepared to work long hours - carving takes a lot of time! Margolin will also be demonstrating burnishing and discussing tools, prep, and techniques.
No prior experience is necessary.
Cost $200 - Includes all materials and a light vegetarian lunch.
