Powerful Pictures: Stories on Clay Workshop with Shanna Fliegel

Powerful Pictures: Stories on Clay Demonstration with Shanna Fliegel

Instructor: Shanna Fliegel

Sunday March 5th, 2023
6 Hour Workshop 10am – 5pm

Workshop Description

Human connection and relationship to landscape, love, struggle and memory internally coalesce as layered stories. This daily hands-on workshop will run 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and offers the opportunity to explore your poetic voice and narratively express your individual story through clay. Discover the power of imagery with the help of daily writing prompts, playful drawing exercises and pattern research. Emphasis will be on generating a lexicon of imagery and symbols which translate well on a variety of clay canvas forms. Shanna will demonstrate printing techniques, image transfers, underglaze application, sgraffito, mishima, and wax resist glazing, while simultaneously offering guidance regarding composition and color. Participants of all levels will have access to a variety of thermofax printing screens – stencil types that are customizable and made ready to use without using photographic emulsion to experiment with. Demonstrations on both red and white clay bodies will include building forms which lend themselves well to surface embellishment including press molded tiles, textured tablets, slab built platters, coil built textured vessels and wheel thrown pottery.

Shanna is a past Artist In Residence at Clay Art Center and we are excited to be able to feature her workshop as part of our Homecoming: An Invitational Exhibition Celebrating 25 Years of Clay Art Center’s Artists in Residence Program event.
