Shaped Narratives in Clay Workshop-with TJ Erdahl
November 2 & 3
Create a clay replica of your face from a life-cast mold. Once casted, learn specific mold-making and hand building techniques that allow you to re-create and alter a series of ceramic faces and head sculptures. This workshop incorporates both traditional hollow-form hand building and press-molding processes. You will cast your own face to create a reusable silicone rubber mold as a starting point. From there, explore alteration and modification. This hands-on workshop will incorporate morning and afternoon demonstrations, slide lectures, and ample work time with one-on-one discussions/critiques.
Skill Level:All levels. Comfort working small and life drawing or sculpture experience are helpful.
