    Lauren Karle
    Sewing Clay
    Slip Transferred Patterns on Slab-built Pots

    sponsored by the New Mexico Potters and Clay Artists (NMPCA)


    a 2-day workshop at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico
    September 8-10, 2017


    Registration extended to August 14, 2017

    Lauren Karle leads a hand-on workshop exploring pattern transferred to slabs, and then shows us all her tricks to make wonderful functional hand-build pottery. 

    Lauren explains, “Pattern can reference culture; it can imply time and place. In this workshop, we will slip transfer meaningful patterns onto slabs of clay. By experimenting with layers of prints, texture, painting, resist, slip trailing, and more our surfaces will be visually interesting and embedded with significance. Using our decorated slabs, we will hand build pots by darting and seaming. Lectures about pattern and form development will allow each participant to expand their ideas. We will discuss how pattern and color can be used to enhance volume, merging surface and form.” 

    Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to try Lauren's techniques themselves.  

    Learn more about Lauren, her community projects and her ceramic works at www.laurenkarle.com .  

    Accommodations and meals are handled slightly differently at Ghost Ranch this year, to see this page of our website for an explanation of accommodations, meal service, and what to expect, plus alternatives to staying on the ranch.
