43 Raku fired Sculpture with Paperclay
Lorri Acott-Fowler - www.lorriacottfowler.com
Oct. 19th – 25th 2014
Sculpture. Beginners

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: € 980
The workshop fee includes
the following:
- Tuition (class is 6/7  hours per day with 12 hours studio time)
- Materials and firings 
- Lodging in double room; single room on request at extra cost of 140 €
- Welcome dinner and welcome breakfast
- A freshly prepared full Tuscan lunch with wine on all working days
