PAPER CLAY!!!

Paper Clay Workshop
2- Day Hands on Workshop
Monday and Tuesday-9:30-4:30
Oct. 19th & 20th, 2009
$195. (Includes all supplies)

Make paper clay out of any clay body that you are currently using.
Paper clay increase’s the dry strength of the body so that moving large pieces is less of a problem. Paper in the clay “opens” up the clay body so that you can work with much thicker walls for sculptural forms. Water vapor will escape the walls because of the paper; the threat of exploding walls is reduced. Paper clay can also be used on the wheel.

The instructor will use slides to illustrate forms that can beconstructed with paper clay, and he will demonstrate such forms as cups,pitchers and teapots to give students a sense of the materials potential. The workshop will also explore the use of texture, construction techniques, and decoration using paper clay. This is a hands-on workshop so please bring basic hand-building tools with you to the workshop. The workshop will provide paperclay for you to experiment with.
