Assembling the Doll: The Process and Practice of Creative Intuition
Sunday, August 7-
Sunday, August 14, 2022
Instructors: Gail Rappa and Elaine Parks
For many of us the noise of the world these past couple of years has drowned out our ability to listen to our intuition. The act of collecting found objects and assembling them to create a finished piece requires the artist to look for and at the materials, listen to what the materials say, trust that knowing, and then follow that guidance through the creative process, over and over again until the piece is complete.
Join us for this 6 day workshop that will be equal parts play, process and practice. Participants will be encouraged to push themselves toward their artistic edge by trusting their intuition to create dolls incorporating clay, metal, fiber and found objects.
The workshop will cover working with cone 5 clay, handbuilding, glazing, using an electric kiln, and use of cold connections for attaching a variety of found objects. We will create a safe environment for sharing and critiques that will happen throughout the workshop.
Tuition is $850 and includes room and board for 6 days, plus the arrival evening and departure morning.
Final payment and signed liability waiver due by July 17, 2022.
Cancellation by July 17, 2022.
