clay, wheel, body 2016-17

I am teaching, making, and collaborating with sixteen clay enthusiasts at the National Art School, Sydney, April 30 to June 18, 2016:  Marita, Diana, Imogen, Emma, Isabella, Megan, Courtney, Stephanie, Sam, Bianca, Gillian, Justin, Dennis, Andrea, GinaQ with Rachel Dreyfus, potter and talented intern with Public Programs. I can’t fully name them all here, but they know who they are.

I have called this public program course ‘Clay, Wheel, Body’. My focus is to go BIG. And we are … getting there … surprising one another with the leaps and gains after each week’s risk, a-bodied play, handiwork.
