    Ceramics: Alternative Strategies with Walter Ostrom, CM and Jordan McDonald, Lunenburg School of the Arts, Summer Workshop, July 10-21, 2017

    "In this intensive two-week workshop, students will be pushed to advance their technical and conceptual understanding of pottery. The course will revolve around projects designed to explore alternative strategies and approaches. Slide lectures and discussions will present unconventional perspectives and insights from ceramics history encompassing contemporary practice. Demonstrations will include bizarre throwing and hand-building techniques, slips and glazes. This course is an opportunity for one-on-one interaction relative to your work and personal development. To provide some respite from the drudging and toiling in the studio, there will be short field trips in the area to view ceramic studios and collections. High octane glaze testing and surface exploration are also a part of this course. Prior clay experience is required."
    Thank you FUSION: the Ontario Clay and Glass Association, for providing me a scholarship to attend this workshop in beautiful Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
