Summer 2019 Build a Better Beast Workshop with Steve Palmer
This workshop will focus on designing and constructing an animal with a combination of techniques including slab, coil, modeling with both reductive and additive processes. Whether you create a replica of a real animal, one totally from your imagination, or an abstract suggestion of an animal you you will learn sculptural techniques that can be used for many other forms of clay sculpture. Humans have been sculpting animals for at least 26,000 years, now its your turn. Enjoy!
Prerequisite: Some basic handbuilding experience and a willingness to explore new ideas is helpful.
