INTUITIVE APPROACH TO HANDBUILDING - ALL LEVELS A class environment where you, beginner or pro, have the opportunity to explore your own creativity. We often expect to be told what to do, but the secret is: The best stuff resides within yourself. My job is to guide you, show you the unlimited possibilities and offer the technical skills to make it happen. We will use the word "Yes" throughout the class. Yes, we will do the usual handbuilding methods: coil, pinch, slab, etc., including raku, and yes, we will chart our own course while doing so. See spruillarts.org for additional details regarding supplies.

You will need to bring work that has already been bisque fired; preferably raku clay but other clays often work out well too. I will fire continuously throughout the day and try to include the work of as many participants in each firing as is practicable. Therefore, size and quantity do matter; but I will make every effort within reason to get as much work fired as is possible. If you have unusually large or cumbersome pieces you wish to have fired, please check with the instructor before signing up for the workshop.
