Symposium examines women who work with clay to create pottery, art vessels, and sculpture and whatever point of view may come with that distinction. There will be an emphasis on the creative process from every level – from inspiration and ideas to the actual making and finishing, while at the same time examining the particular aspects and points of view that may be unique to women working in clay. We will explore the connections of the long history of women in cultures all over the world as vessel makers, artists, and artisans. Included are demonstrations on making figurative sculpture, plaster mold making, throwing pottery on the wheel, altering thrown pots, hand building sculptural vessels and functional pottery, as well as decorative and glaze techniques. Call 362-6021 for additional information.

Admission Fee: Call for cost and more information
