9:00 - 11:30am: Tiles, Tiles, and More Tiles with Josh Blanc
Tiles are an architectural staple of society and make for a great classroom project. They are accessible for students who have never worked with clay, are learning a new surface décor skill, and even for working collaboratively. Learn some (low tech) tips and tricks for making tiles (and firing) with your students from a local legend and tile master, and make some yourself!
12:30 - 3:00pm: Majolica Mania with Karin Kraemer
The use of bright colors and intricate, decorative images are second nature to Duluth potter Karin Kraemer. With Karin as your guide, learn about the various approaches to Majolica and expand your knowledge about this glaze tool. Turn the surfaces of your wares into vivid canvases. This workshop will include hands-on time!
3:30 - 5:00pm GLAZE with Joel Froehle
Glaze—full of mystery and madness! What makes this necessary aspect of the ceramic process so magical and so overwhelming?
