Would you make it in a slump? Would you prefer it on a hump? Join NCC studio artist Olivia Tani in the studio for a two-day workshop to revolutionize the possibilities of utilizing hump and slump molds in your own making routines. Watch and absorb demonstrations of her masterful techniques using molds to transform slabs into carefully considered, dynamic plates, then practice a similar process where a mold is just the beginning. You’ll drape, carve, and incorporate wheel techniques to shape and trim your form, and add a foot. You’ll examine and integrate every square inch of surface as you plan, build, reduce, and smooth a large plate. Learn about making your own bisque mold off of another form or on the wheel, how to construct and what to consider. Bring your own mold to use during the workshop. It can be an existing plaster or bisque mold or even a ceramic, plastic, or metal form. X2: Saturday & Sunday, February 20 & 21, 12 — 4 pm Instructor: Olivia Tani Fee: $115 non-members (members recieve 5% discount)
