Plan for next spring: The Ceramics Department of the Art League of Alexandria is hosting Nick Joerling for a weekend workshop. I’m not going to miss this one. I’ve got it marked on my calendar.
Here is the description:
Beginning with wheel-thrown round post, students will push, cut, coax, and stretch these forms to create something new and exciting. Focus will be on utilitarian pots, but some liberty may be taken. Various ways of making handles, lids, and spouts will be explored. Process is paramount, humor is emphasized, and taking chances is encouraged. Some throwing experience is recommended. pots will be bisqued but not glaze-fired. Cost includes clay.
