Description: Alice Ballard is an expert at Seeing and looking to nature for inspiration. She will be showing us several of her hand building and surface treatment techniques, including pinch pots, dowel pots and slab construction. This will include hands-on participation. Bring your collected treasures for inspiration or direct impressions into the clay surface. A journal is also necessary. We will create a series of pinch or dowel cups with a relationship. Participants will also get a chance to use terra sigillata on their own work that is dry or close to dry. Overall, other than discovering forms we like and using terra sig, this workshop is about connecting with the clay and ourselves, learning how to slow down, observe, feel, and respond creatively. Equipment list shall be sent upon your paid registration.

Attendance is limited to 15 participants.
