Visiting Artist Workshop
2-Day and 3-Day workshops with Tortus
Tortus will visit Choplet Studio in June 2023 and will teach a 3-day masterclass as well as two 2-day workshops.
Friday June 23 – Sunday June 25, 9AM – 3:30PM
Eric Landon will demonstrate numerous vessel types giving a comprehensive look at the unique approach and techniques he applies at the wheel to make his larger and more complicated vessels. The workshop will cover a series of advanced larger scale vessels, including a moon jar, and focus on fine-tuning your hand and body movement to help center and manage larger amounts of clay than what you are used to throwing and with less effort. This workshop is not recommended for beginners.
Monday June 26 – Tuesday June 27, 9AM – 4PM
Wednesday June 28 – Thursday June 29, 9AM – 4PM
The 2-day workshops are open to all levels. In the mornings you will be given a thorough introduction to the techniques that Eric Landon uses to get most out of the clay with a focus on efficiency and precision at the wheel. The workshop will be hands-on and you will be practicing the techniques under the guidance and supervision from Eric. He will also be giving many demos throughout the two day workshop.
A 25lbs bag of white stoneware Laguna #65 is included with the workshops. Additional clay and specialty clay can be purchased from the studio during the workshop.
Bisque and glaze firing to cone 6 is available at 3 cents per cubic inch, per firing. Non members of the studio can schedule a 2h glazing drop-in session with the front desk for $30.
