If conditions allow:
5-day Totem/Narrative Clay Sculpture Workshop at my studio.
Sept 15-19, 2020, 10 am to 4 pm plus open studio hours.
A totem is one or more objects that helps tell the story of an individual or group. Totems, like shrines and other empowered objects, are a way to zero in on what inspires you or is meaningful. In this workshop, we will employ exercises such as collage on paper and sketching in clay to collect and play with images, ideas, stories, forms and surfaces that you might want to incorporate. From these source materials, we will develop and design one or more totems to make in clay. You may end up with a number of standalone pieces or pieces and parts for a stacking totem. You are invited to scale your work to a size that best suits your objectives for the week and comfort level, and within that scale, I will provide guidance and instruction in construction. We’ll look at a couple of approaches to stacking totems that are key to the design process. Some handbuilding experience is helpful.
$495 includes materials and bisque firing. Financial assistance available. Here's a link to see photos and get more info: saraswink.com/section/453712-TOTEM-WORK…
