Continuing Education . Classes
Presented as part of Bill Lorton’s Endangered Studies traveling curriculum, this course will explore the pattern rich processes of Shibori. This centuries-old method of dyeing utilizes binding, stitching, and clamping to impart stunning marks and patterns to fabric. We will focus primarily on the techniques practiced in the Arimatsu and Narumi regions of Japan, and will also experiment with direct application and color discharge. Dyes and chemical assists will be provided, but students must supply their own cotton and/or silk fabrics.

Breathe new life into mundane discarded objects that clutter our landfills. Explore craft and fine art and design with sculptural/wearable art in the spirit of Project Runway’s ‘Unconventional’ challenges, and sustainable ideals. Students can create a head piece, mask or garment from found objects (start collecting them now) and costume design as you rework everyday materials into new objects with soul. Start collecting materials like plastic grocery bags, junk CD’s, crunchy plastic packaging and other found plastics now!

Dates February 3 - March 24 (Tuesday) – 6 - 9pm
Discover throwing on the potter’s wheel to create forms ranging from refined porcelain vessels to rustic teabowls to sculptural objects. We will begin with fundamental elements of centering and making cylinders, cups, bowls, and plates, and continue by exploring form and scale. Finishing surfaces with various methods of carving, joining, and decorating will also be included. Everyone has a unique way of touching clay and this will be an opportunity to get better acquainted with your unique touch while using the wheel. Please bring sketches of forms, decorative patterns or drawings, texturing tools, basic pottery tools, a small bucket, a towel, and plastic to cover work. All experience levels are welcome.
