Join Anthony Brink for a 4-day immersive approach to his practice. Whatever your skills, be assured that Anthony will facilitate your personal level while learning first hand the tips and tricks that take a lifetime to acquire from a master ceramicist. Be a part of a community of practice designed to further your interests and develop your skills.
This wheel based ceramics class is designed to help you take your practice to the next level. The 4-day guided learning intensive will focus on developing wheel skills in pursuit of discovering your own individual language of form. Throwing, trimming and glazing techniques will be discussed and demonstrated during the course.
This work will be bisque fired during the week so that works are ready for glazing on the second weekend. As well as glazing there will be an opportunity for additional guided practice at the wheel, demonstration of batch glazing, and an overview with tutorial notes provided on glaze structure, raw materials and the role they play in glaze making. Glaze fired work will be available for pick up 2 weeks later.
