Momoko Usami Workshop @ Lillstreet

For those of you unfamiliar with Momoko’s ceramic works, she creates sculpturally functional ceramics that are clever, kinetic and playful. Her work ranges from cups, mugs and vases to large scale sculptural work. Momoko’s approach to clay is truly unique and the works speak to that.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn to translate personal narratives to your forms and surfaces. Momoko will demonstrate basic building techniques and surface techniques such as slip inlay and sgraffito to create your narrative wares.

All levels are welcome in this workshop. Plus, there’s one week left for early bird pricing. Register now through August 1, and save $50 on the workshop cost.
