This intensive workshop hosted by Yadawei Ceramics Studio and conducted by Katy des Fontaines will teach participants how to create and design spherical objects in clay. All skill levels welcome.
Designing and executing a sculpture in clay works better in practice than in theory. This workshop will benefit anyone looking to explore the basics of sculptural ceramics.
Participants will learn how a simple pinching technique can be used to create sculptural art. They will need to consider size, proportions, structure and balance when they design. At the end of the event, everyone will have an object that they can take home to be air dried.
Recommended for ages 16+

About Katy des Fontaines
Katy is a Belgian-born artist who has lived and worked across Europe, Asia and Africa. Her sculptures include spheres and round shapes which signify the softness of the human soul. Her work has always had African accents, as she believes once you have put your foot on the African continent, you never see things in the same way.
Katy chose to design in ceramics as she believes that clay lets you make mistakes as long as you water it like a plant to keep it alive. Clay is generous and does not judge you - you can erase, redo, undo, start over again, and you only let it dry when you are satisfied with the result.
