WORKSHOPS

Stenciling

Laura Davis has been experimenting in ceramics since 2003 and established Core Clay in 2005. She will be teaching a one-day (four hour), hands-on workshop on stenciling on Sunday April 8. She will show students how to stencil on clay at using a variety of techniques by mixing and matching stencils and layering slips and underglazes. She began collecting stencils when her grandmother gave her a bunch of hand cut stencils. Laura started incorporating stencils into her ceramic surfaces in 2015. Since then, stenciling has turned into a bit of an addiction (though a healthy addiction) for her. During an unusually self-aware holiday moment, Laura realized she has purchased all the stencils available in the Hyde Park Michael’s at least once. Laura has hand-made, store bought, and custom laser cut stencils and will show students in her workshop what makes a great stencil for ceramic surfaces and what to avoid. This workshop is Sunday, April 8 from 4 - 8pm and is designed for all experience levels. This four hour workshop costs $80 and includes clay, slips, underglazes, and clay tools. Workshop enrollment is limited to ten adults. Feel free to bring along any additional clay tools, texturing tools and stencils you are interested in trying out.

Baum Pottery Workshop

Mike Baum has been making wheel thrown, functional pottery for 40 years. His studio, Baum Pottery, is in Lebanon, Ohio, where he and his wife Karen throw, alter, and decorate their wares. Join Mike for a two part throwing workshop on Saturday, February 17 and Saturday, March 3. Mike will demonstrate how he makes stackable bowls and plates, square casseroles, lidded vessels, pulls handles, and much more. Participants will learn tricks of the trade that Mike has discovered throughout his extensive pottery career. The second workshop day will be for participants to 1) bring in greenware they have been working on and 2) throw pieces. Mike will be available to make suggestions and to troubleshoot work that participants were taught to make on February 17. It is a great way to see how pieces are made first hand and then have a professional production potter assist and give practical advice. Space in this two part workshop is limited and participants must have had at least three previous class experiences either at WSCW or another pottery studio. Workshop is February 17 from 5:30 - 9:00pm and March 3 from 5:30 - 7:30pm. Cost is $110 for both days.
