Artists helping Artists
This blog post is promoting my buddy Heather Smit. I had Heather do a handbuilding workshop at Pinecroft Centre for the Arts and I did a residency with Heather at Starworks last February pre COVID. Heather is an amazing maker and very thorough and dedicated teacher. What can I learn about making a slab cup and a flask you ask? I maintain if you want to be a successful ceramics teacher you should have a solid foundation. That means you should be able to hand build, throw, fire kilns, make and formulate glazes and in these days know how to market yourself and your work. Heather is the complete package. Her 2 hour workshop on Sunday for $20 Cdn is railroad robbery. I've signed up not to heckle her, not to keep her on her toes but to learn what this woman can teach the old dawg. If I learn one thing it is $20 well spent. BTW combining hand building and throwing is a pretty nice marriage. Here is Heather's description of the day VIRTUAL WORKSHOP - Drinking Vessels. March 28, 2021 (1pm EST) Approx. 90 minutes. This soft-slab hand building workshop will cover basic tool and template design for making in multiples. Start to finish flat, footed & belly bottomed mugs, cups and flask demos. Bring a pen, paper and any questions you might have. This is a live workshop, no replay recordings. You'll have to show up for this one. You will receive two emails after purchase. The first will be your workshop receipt. The second will arrive on March 26th or 27th with the workshop link and a list of tool & glaze recipe favs. One last thing, maybe you want to attend but could u$e a break? I've got your back. Send me a quick email. No questions asked, no judgment passed 💛 Now dammit Heather how sweet is this last statement? There are givers and takers in this world. I know where your tent is pitched. Kuddos to you. Artists helping Artists. Be there or be square https://thehandbuilder.com/shop/ols/products/virtual-workshop-drinking-vessels-march-28th Pass the collection plate. This is going to be a sermon you don't want to miss.
