Hand Built Bowls
VIRTUAL INSTRUCTIONAL WORKSHOP WITH NAOMI CLEMENT
Tuesday, May 4th 2021
6:30 - 8:30 pm EST
Class fee $45 USD
In this virtual workshop, Naomi will demonstrate how she uses simple bisque molds to hand-build bowls with textured slabs of clay. Special attention will be paid to refining rims and adding feet, as well as creating texture using various tools. Naomi will also discuss larger questions of proportion, as well as utilitarian considerations to keep in mind when making these forms. Note: this class covers the construction portion of Naomi’s process — surface treatment and processes are addressed in a separate workshop.
Naomi will demonstrate outlined techniques for approximately 1.75 hours, after which there will be some time reserved for more in-depth, live Q&A. All workshops will be hosted by the Sonoma Ceramics staff; participants will be encouraged to ask questions using the chat forum in Zoom, and the host will communicate these questions to Naomi during her demo.
All students will receive the Zoom recording of the workshop to watch at their convenience for two weeks after the workshop. Many participants choose to observe the virtual workshop and work later, but you may also work alongside Naomi during the demo.
