Four day workshop, Feb 27 and 28 and March 5 and 6.

Portland artist Jan Edwards joins us once again to share her playful and unique methods of handbuilding and decorating tableware.

In this workshop we will spend two weekends exploring a multitude of ways to make pots for the table...bowls, cups, plates, pitchers, platters, butter dishes, without the use of a potter's wheel. Don't you wish you had a good Fish Platter, or a tall Vase, or perhaps a set of Sushi Plates? You name it... we'll make it. We'll use colorful Terra Cotta Clay and underglazes, slips and stains to embellish our pots. There's a cornucopia of decorative techniques to be explored.

Tuition: $235

Learn etching without acids! The traditional method of etching copper plates requires the use of toxic acids which are hazardous to use and dispose of. This workshop will utilize safer mordents that erode metal efficiently without the need for ventilation or hazardous waste disposal. Topics covered will also include image development, etching grounds, safer mordents, aquatinting methods, and printing techniques. Each participant will produce a limited edition print during the workshop.

Jon Goebel is the Printmaking Director and Master Printer at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. He is a nationally recognized artist known for his symbolically charged print works. He has received multiple awards for his intaglio work and shown in over 100 group exhibitions across the United States and abroad including China, Portugal, Bulgaria, Argentina, Spain, South Korea, Canada, India, and Puerto Rico. Jon has taught numerous printmaking workshops in the U.S. and at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in Chongqing, China. More at: www.jongoebel.com
