Pattern and Design in Clay
with Molly Hatch
July 5–7, 2017

Tuition $360 (includes $35 lab fee)
Maximum enrollment 15
Open to intermediate and advanced artists

By using primarily pattern, participants will learn techniques for activating all surfaces of an object, including techniques for transferring a two-dimensional drawing to three-dimensional clay objects. Molly Hatch will discuss and demonstrate her approach to ceramic design and share best practices when developing work for the design industry in this three-day hands-on workshop. Demonstrations will cover concepts for three-dimensional design and basic approaches to decoration. This workshop will best serve artists interested in developing surface design, a larger product line or expanding into industrial design.

Hatch will give a public artist talk on Wednesday, July 5 at 7:30 pm in the Bray Resident Center.
