"Everything We Touch, It Touches Us" A week-long workshop at Touchstone Center for Crafts

Date: August 3 – 7, 2015

Workshop Title: Everything We Touch, It Touches Us

Instructor: Yoko Sekino-Bové

Workshop Skill Level: All Levels

Workshop Type: 5-Day Workshop (Monday-Friday)

The artist’s voice is often constructed with the materials, structures, colors, surfaces, and techniques he or she chooses to use. This workshop will be about discovering and developing your voice and telling your stories through clay. Materials, functions, tools, and firing methods will be discussed and demonstrations to improve your technical skills will be shown. Since ceramic work often presents stories of its own, your creative challenge in this workshop will be to establish a conversation with it and discover where that dialogue leads. We will use mid-range electric kilns to complete some projects. All levels welcome.
