Description

Scale Up Workshop with Adam Ledford

Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn from award-winning Philadelphia-based ceramic artist Adam Ledford in an upcoming workshop co-hosted by the Center for Craft and Odyssey Clayworks. In this large-scale hand-building workshop, students will work with Ledford and learn techniques to create large vessel forms. Emphasis will be placed on how clay texture impacts building techniques and experimentation with non-traditional clay tools can lead to unique shapes and textures. The workshop will include hands-on studio time and Ledford will also share images from his travels and from historical research he has conducted of various museum collections. The cost of this workshop includes the $150 tuition and a $30 lab fee.

Odyssey Clayworks is an educational pottery studio and gallery located in the historic River Arts District at 236 Clingman Ave. Asheville, NC 28801.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Scale Up: 10 Years, 10 Fellows, 10 Projects, on view January 19–July 28, 2018 at the Center for Craft.
