Adult Workshops

WE WILL BE OFFERING A SMALL NUMBER OF INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOPS DURING OUR SUMMER 2021 SEMESTER (May 24 through August 28). See the INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOPS tab for details.

 

Mudflat's lectures and workshops cover a broad range of topics for everyone from beginner to advanced students. They're a great opportunity to gather with students and clay artists from Mudflat and elsewhere to explore a variety of ceramic art, try your hand at new techniques, or meet visiting artists and socialize over a slide show and potluck dinner.

 

We are happy to announce that our new soda kiln is now firing!

Summer 2021 SODA WORKSHOPS

Registration begins 4/20 (members), 4/22 (general) - call the Mudflat office to register

To get everyone up to speed on how this kiln works and how to get the best results, we will be offering orientation workshops. If you want to put work in the soda kiln, you will need to register for a workshop.

The workshop will include a mandatory orientation meeting that will discuss clay bodies, best forms to make, application of flashing slips, texture considerations, glaze choice and glazing tips, plus what happens in a soda kiln during the firing.

Each enrolled student will be allowed about 1800 cubic inches of kiln space (one kiln shelf - 12” w x 18” long x 8” high) or about 25 mugs, for example.

Students must be registered for a Mudflat class, Independent Study or Affiliated in order to register for a soda workshop.

(Register for the same session soda workshop as the Summer session class or IS that you are registered for)
