#846 – Clay Cooperative Workshop: Sharing and Combining

Elaine Rowgo

Open to intermediate and advanced clay people. This is a fun workshop combining the products of handbuilders, throwers, and extruded pieces to create new forms. Each participant shares something in clay they create in the morning. After lunch, it’s a buffet of choices to combine. The goal is to create new forms, from various parts made by the participants of the workshop. Bisque firing provided as well as pugged claim. The idea is to have a lot of fun, stretching your mind and creating a brave new form, perhaps never seen before!

Special price for students enrolled in Fall Semester: $25 (call the Education Center to register at this special rate).

I am one of those people who played “Art Teacher” to my younger brother and sister, at age 6. I have always loved drawing, painting, and the visual world. Clay is just a wider field of expression in the creative field. So I like to teach my passion about this medium with the hope that my students also find it fascinating.

I enjoy all aspects of clay: wheel throwing; hand building; and sculpture. With my BFA in painting I tend also to combine painting with certain forms. My approach to teaching is to encourage every student to find their own “voice” in clay. Discovering clay’s huge range of possibilities, sharing what I have learned over a decade of teaching, and seeing students explore what clay can do, make it an exciting medium to teach.
