Ceramic Planters with Katheryn Corbin

A Ceramics Workshop with Katheryn Corbin

Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included)
Registration: Registration is closed. You may be interested in Make a Planter for Spring Flowers: A Ceramics Workshop with Katheryn Corbin, Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

Make a ceramic planter for Valentine’s Day using coil building techniques, red clay slip, and surface decoration. Draw your inspiration from Lynden’s acres or mementos brought from home. Planters will be fired at Lynden and ready for pick-up by Valentine’s Day, or you can join our Spring Sawdust Firing for a subtle, shining finish. Beginners welcome.

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting.

About Katheryn Corbin
Katheryn Corbin is a painter, potter, and figure sculptor. Pots and figures have both been a part of Corbin's studio practice and teaching. Drawing and painting are important elements in each discipline, and her clay pieces are informed by the complementary processes of working with clay as vessel and as figure. Corbin is interested in historical developments in clay and variations across cultures, and she often explores different firing techniques and glaze surfaces. She has taught at all levels from elementary school through adult at the Evanston Arts Center in Evanston, IL; the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design; and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

February 3, 2019 - 12:30pm - 2:30pm

Free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden. Younger children should be accompanied by an adult.

The mind layers images, and when we create layered images in the studio, they can evoke and uncover the complexity of the unconscious. Explore the open-ended possibilities of the gel plate, and build images using print and collage. We'll cover basic gel plate techniques using monoprint, collage, and drawing in a fluid, no-boundaries process.
