Workshop structure

In this two day masterclass Lisa will guide you through her unique technique of handbuilding traditional spherical forms. Inspired by Korean Oongi techniques you will learn coil building and the use of minimal tools to shape and texture your pots. Creating in an experimental process-oriented way rather than a result-driven one, artistic output and your acquisition of knowledge are the aims of this workshop. 

Day 1 will focus on how to coil correctly, getting a feeling for haptic and different thicknesses of coils, allowing each students’ individual building characteristics to develop. 

Day 2 focuses on gaining height with developing awareness for ratio and shape, details like the rim, texture and slips. This day is also a chance for students to experiment with shapes, like rectangular or abstract forms.

Throughout the workshop students also have the opportunity to contribute to the building of a large communal pot, this is a highlight of Lisa's workshop.
