Specialty Classes and Workshops

While we don't do specialty workshops, many local art centers do. We think our students and members would be interested. If you know of a special pottery workshop happening in the Twin Cites, please email us the details so we can add it here.

Carved Relief Clay Tiles with Alex Chinn

This three-session workshop will focus on carving relief images into tiles. Students will bring a sketch, drawing, or image that will be used to carve directly into a tile to render the image in low relief. Students will learn techniques to increase the visual depth of the image without increasing the thickness of the tile.

The first session will cover some history, making tile blanks, transferring the image, and carving. The second session will be time for questions, problem-solving, and continued work. The third session will focus on finishing the bisque tiles (glazes, stains…). Students can make use of Open Studio time during the 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. time frame on the Tuesdays between sessions to make new work or to complete their projects. Please bring at least one 8”x 8” image on plain paper to the first class. Two 8” frost-hearty terra cotta tile blanks will be provided for each student to use in the first class. A straight edge ruler, dull pencil, and clay carving tools will be helpful. A small utility knife will be provided. Terra cotta clay and Raku clay will be available for purchase for additional projects.

When: Tuesdays, October 3 & 10, and November 7
10 a.m - 1 p.m.

Cost: $10
