K-12 Educator Workshop

We are looking forward to our annual K-12 Educator Workshop with Jennifer Hoolihan & Kelsey Sickmeyer. The workshop meets April 8-9, Friday 6-9pm, Saturday 9-4pm.

Time to get creative and have fun while connecting and networking with other teaching professionals. This workshop will include plenty of hands-on time learning new projects you can share with your students.

Friday night we will experiment with pattern using plastic stencils and low fire glaze layering on bisque tile. Tiles will be fired Friday night and unloaded Saturday afternoon. During loading we will discuss kiln maintenance and repair. Each participant will leave with two finished tiles.

Saturday morning we will create hand built platters to explore a wide variety of surface decoration, including image transfer and mishima inlay techniques with slips and underglazes. After lunch we will have a raku firing! Participants will glaze pots with both raku and low fire glazes and learn about the intricacies of the raku process. At the end of the day educators will receive a certificate for 10 hours towards 1 professional development credit for attending the workshop.

All materials will be provided. Students should bring their sketchbooks, apron and favorite clay tools.
