Sculpture. For all
Participants will study a new way of working with clay, using the work of great artists to inform and inspire their own work. Using paperclay (regular ceramic clay with paper fibers added to it), Lorri teaches skills and techniques that encourage fragile and elongated forms that are often regarded as impossible to make and fire. After initial instruction on the methods of creating paperclay sculpture we will venture into Florence to be inspired by the Italian masters. The class will culminate in an actual raku firing of our work so that you will leave class with your finished sculpture. Fun, hands-on and experimental, Lorri will teach you the concepts and techniques and then allow you to "go for it", opening your mind to a new way of creating.
Cost € 990 It includes welcome dinner, lunches, lodging, tuition, materials and firings
