The amazing artists Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell aka These Gray Days will be hosting some upcoming masters’ ceramic workshops that you won’t want to miss.

“We are pleased to announce that we are now beginning to hold masters’ workshops at our studio on Granville Island. Our intention is to offer intensive hands-on instruction, focusing on building skill sets with concrete objectives. They are designed to move students through a rapid progression of understanding in the medium. No previous experience is necessary for introductory courses, but students with experience are welcome. For more advanced courses, we ask that students take the introductory courses first or demonstrate their level of experience. The courses will be offered once per week and in four-week segments (although this may vary from one course to another).

Our first courses will begin Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012. Each class will be from 7pm to 10pm once per week on its given day. Space is limited (4 to 5 per class) and classes are filling up fast, so contact us right away to secure your spot.”

Andrew Martin Workshop @ Lillstreet Art Center


Monday, March 19, 2012 to Friday, March 23, 2012Level: Visiting Artist WorkshopsPrice: LAC Members $600.00 / Non-Members $600.00Lab Fee: $30.00


Students should come ready to try something new, or with a latent idea that is yet to manifest. Dinnerware, teapots, vases, platters, and cups and saucers are but a few possibilities to explore. This five-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to explore and expand their knowledge of form and utility through the use of molds and slip casting. Andrew will discuss different approaches for designing prototypes and making molds, how to formulate slip specific to your needs, and explore how the workshop can initiate new directions in your work. Students should come with questions and ready to stretch their skill, knowledge, and experience.It will be possible to accomplish making one complex mold and/or several small molds. Because of the brevity of the workshop we will cast the molds but the pieces will not be fired.
