Master Class: Creative in Clay
with Lincoln Mayne
3-Day | March 15 - 17th, 2024 | 1 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Creative in Clay is a mind-opening workshop that teaches new playful ways to engage with your creativity.
This workshop is designed to help artists and designers transition to a more distinctive and unique creative voice. In this workshop, you will learn techniques that will expand your capacity to explore, experiment, let go of perfectionism, and allow failure to be part of the creative process.
Creative in Clay is a hand-building workshop focused on form. We will cover all the basic hand-building techniques from slab work, coiling, pinch potting hollow forms, and extruding. This workshop is about inspiring your creativity. If you are new to clay this is the perfect jump-start to get you creating fast, and if you are experienced this is an ideal opportunity to apply everything you've learned in entirely new ways.
