Deb SchwartzkopfDeb Schwartzkopf - Tricks of the Trade

Saturday, June 30, 10am-5pm

$80 members, students, and seniors
$90 non-members

Infuse your studio practice with new ideas and techniques! Learn how to effectively combine wheel thrown and hand build pieces in this full day, demonstration workshop with Deborah Schwartzkopf. Deb will demonstrate and share her techniques on how to alter simple wheel-thrown cylinders and transform them into unique forms. She will also demonstrate how she designs and uses templates to shape slabs and then form them on bisque molds. All of these pieces will be puzzled together, resulting in exciting non-round, expressive shapes.

Workshop participants are highly encouraged to bring questions and join the conversation about making work and setting up a successful pottery studio. Deb will share her experience and give advice on how to in create a fully functional studio from scratch and successfully work with assistants. Other conversational topics will include surface development on ceramic forms, and her approaches in moving clay. She will provide participants with helpful handouts and tips to take home.

This workshop is being held in conjunction with the exhibition i would like to be the air at Radius Gallery featuring new artwork by Courtney Blazon, Mel Griffin, Randi O’Brien & Deb Schwartzkopf. All are invited to attend the artist reception for this exhibition on Friday, June 29.
