Observation is the foundation of creation. Professor Ruth Chambers invites beginner and experienced ceramic artists to carefully observe and sculpt porcelain from life conveying sensitivity, amplifying empathy for the still life subject, and appreciating the sensual tactility of this delicate material in this day-long workshop held at SILT studios.

Learn the specialized methods developed over years of experimentation developing a special formulation of porcelain that has delicacy and strength and is prepared in such a way that it is malleable and resilient enough to sculpt by hand.

Workshop fee includes specially-prepared porcelain and kiln costs to dry and fire participants’ completed pieces. Pieces will not be glazed and re-fired, instead participants will learn how to colour their sculptures by incorporating stain pigments into the clay body itself.

Please observe social distancing protocols, wear a mask and follow sanitation procedures.

workshop offered in partnership with SILT Studio, Regina.

Time: 7 pm

Location: Zoom video conference

Fee: Free

Get to know ceramic artists in your community! The Artist Is In is a forum for discussion featuring short presentations by artists about their work. The AGR has invited KC Adams (Winnipeg), Carole Epp (Saskatoon) and Brenda Wolf (Regina) to share their practices as they resonate or contrast with our scheduled main gallery exhibition, Tend, featuring a profusion of porcelain flowers and bulbs sculpted by Ruth Chambers.

Audience members are encouraged to ask questions following these presentations. AGR staff member Sandee Moore will direct questions to the panel as a whole and engage our Zoom audience in discussion about these artists’ diverse and innovative approaches to this challenging medium.

“Workshop from Home” webinar with Carole Epp

Delve into the entire process of bringing narrative illustration to life on functional ceramics with Carole Epp! Over the course of this 2-hour all-demonstration workshop there will be discussions of design elements and color theory as it applies to surface and object design, as well as the how-tos of storytelling. Plus detailed handbuilding, Mishima, and underglaze painting techniques will be shown.

Carole Epp will teach you how to:

  • Handbuild a plate using found-object slump molds
  • Use the Mishima process to bring a variety of styles of illustration to life on your work
  • Create beautiful narrative surfaces using design elements and color theory
  • Use underglazes like watercolors to create depth and visual interest in your illustrations
  • Translate your ideas into interesting visual narratives

Our Workshop from Home webinars are just like in-person workshops, except you are guaranteed a front-row seat! Ask questions throughout, or during the Question & Answer session at the end.

Wednesday, January 27, 2021, from 13 pm EST USA

Registration fee: $35

Registrants can access a recording of the video for 30 days following the event to revisit techniques! (Registrants will be emailed a video link within 48 hours of the webinar conclusion.)
