A Two-Day Workshop

Saturday, September 17, 10am – 5pm | Sunday, September 18, 10am – 4pm

Jerry Bennett is a leading international paper clay artist. Join us for an in-person workshop with Mr. Bennett, as he guides you through making paper clay and bonding slips for hand-built forms.

In this two-day workshop, we will expand your understanding of this unique material by adding various fibers to the clay to make both functional pottery and sculptural forms. Gain valuable insight as Jerry shares practical, problem-solving advice related to your studio work (i.e. how to fix broken work, reduce shrinkage in clay, and prevent cracks).

All Experience Levels are Welcome. We will be working with cone 6 porcelain. Bring your own tools or the Art Center can provide hand-building tools, small pair of scissors and a clean canvas to work on.

Participants in the hands-on workshop will receive clay materials and handouts that will provide valuable information about paper clay, glaze formulas and supplier information. You can read additional information about paper clay in Mr Bennett's article in Studio Potter magazine Article: Beginning your exploration of Fiber Clay
