40 Extruding new ideas
Luca Tripaldi
Luca Tripaldi - www.lucatripaldi.com
September 25th – October 1st 2016

Handbuilding. For all.

This innovative course dedicated to making with the extruder is now offered for the second time.
We will extrude solid and empty elements of various shapes in stoneware, to be combined and assembled together. The wide array of laser cut and artist designed extruding barrels available will allow for a generous variety of forms. Students will learn how to create their own extruding barrels in clay, so to be able to personalize further their work. Surface techniques that can be applied in other context will be taught as well.
With endless possibilities of combinations, students can create functional objects or abstract forms.
Luca will show various ways to design shapes and how to assemble, alter and combine the extruded parts. While still soft, alteration opens great possibilities of modelling. Those who are expert with clay will enjoy speed in developing and making forms. Beginners will be enthralled by the simplicity of making. This course is particularly satisfying for those who love to work with tools.

The total cost of the course is 980 Euro; Single price supplement: 140 Euros.

The workshop fee includes the following
Tuition (6 – 8 hours per day, studio open 12 hours)
All materials and firings
Lodging in double room; single room on request, add 140 €
Welcome dinner and welcome breakfast
A freshly prepared Tuscan Lunch with wine on all working days
