The island of Majorca and the surrounding Mediterranean countries produce decorative and utilitarian pottery known as Majolica. Majolica ware uses an opaque white glaze as a ground and brush painting with colorful ceramic oxides and stains to create surface decoration. The brush work is similar to painting with watercolors, and this is an excellent workshop for painters new to ceramics. On the first day you will learn basic slab and coil construction, and will hand-build a clay vessel of your choice—perhaps a platter or shallow bowl with plenty of surface for painting. Return a week later to paint your bisque-fired piece in bright spring colors.

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. Pieces will need to be picked up after a second firing.

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.

Spring Session

January 9-May 15, 2019
Wednesdays, 3-5:30 pm
Ages 11 and up

Drop into our studio for informal art exploration. Come for 30 minutes or stay for 2 1/2 hours; visit weekly or stop by when you need an after-school activity; bring a friend or sibling or try it on your own. Each week we'll introduce different materials, processes and themes, and get you started on a project. We'll focus on three-dimensional artmaking--though we will also do plenty of painting, drawing and collaging--and make use of Lynden’s special resources: the collection of monumental sculpture and 40 acres of park, lake and woodland.
