Session 3 Paper Clay, Sat. am
Challenging Limits: Sculpting with Paper Clay (Session 3)
This class introduces the central techniques of sculpting with paper clay, from methods of preparing the materials to various forming and decorating practices. The properties of paper clay solve a number of the technical challenges faced by ceramic sculptors and hand builders, and introduce new possibilities for construction. It is easy to mold and use, has much greater dry strength and cracks less than regular clay, allows for the joining of bone dry pieces, and simplifies any repairs that may arise. Class discussion will include information about different clay bodies and finishing materials. Students will work on self-selected projects, and classes will include demonstrations and one-on-one instruction..
Saturday mornings, 10:00-1:00
