Event Description

Join us for a hands-on exploration of the versatile extruder tool in the ceramics studio. This workshop will delve into the often-overlooked potential of extrusions in creating functional stoneware pieces. Through a combination of demonstrations and guided practice, participants will discover how to integrate extrusions with slabs to develop unique forming techniques. Emphasizing a process-oriented approach, we'll allow the clay's natural properties to guide our creations, resulting in dynamic and vibrant pieces. Whether you're a seasoned potter or new to the craft, this workshop offers valuable insights and techniques to enhance your ceramic practice.

What to Expect:
Participants will engage in practical demonstrations and hands-on exercises, gaining proficiency in using the extruder tool and exploring its diverse applications. Through step-by-step guidance, attendees will learn how to create cups, mugs, and vases using both extruded and slab-formed components. Expect an immersive experience that encourages experimentation and fosters creativity in clay. There will also be an hour break for lunch. You're welcome to bring food or take advantage of the many options in the neighborhood. 
Skills You'll Acquire:
- Proficient use of the extruder tool for clay manipulation
- Techniques for integrating extrusions with slabs in ceramic projects
- Creation of functional stoneware items such as cups, mugs, and vases
