Extrusions and Sprigs

This 2 day workshop will focus on the use of an extruding pugmill, various hollow dies, a ton of clay, and the making of self-designed sprigs!  The first day will be dedicated to working as a team to make hundreds of tubes, tiles, and bricks by extruding a coarse, groggy clay body via a de-airing pugmill.  On the first day class will also sculpt and cast in plaster various sprig molds ranging in size from a thumbnail to as big as a hand.  

The second day will focus on assembling the parts and decorating them with sprigs.  Participants should expect to work intuitively with the clay and each other while exploring a new, loose way of working.  The clay body used is the same one that Diana uses for all of her exterior projects.

$195 tuition covers instruction, clay, and a great lunch each day.
