FROM THE EARTH

July 29, 2017 (Saturday, 9 am to 5 pm; except for the 8:00 am "early bird" bird walk)

1530 Randolph Road, Alfred Station, NY 14803

From the Earth is an event that celebrates our connection to the earth. Be inspired and learn from a variety of talks and demonstrations.  Enjoy a fun and rewarding day with friends and family.

For those of you who are planning what to do in beautiful Allegany County this summer, From the Earth is not to be missed.  This will be its tenth year of presenting a free event that celebrates rural living.  A large variety of presentations and activities at six locations around Alfred, NY will include old favorites like a bird walk at Foster Lake, gardens and garden talks, a timber framing shop, and an organic dairy farm.  But also, every year new ideas are presented.  Come and learn how to turn a wood bowl, make Swiss cheese, or rag rug braiding techniques.  The Southern Tier Fiber Arts Guild will be doing demonstrations throughout the day involving spinning, weaving, knitting, and felting.  Kid’s activities at the Alfred State College Farm Garden will include storytelling and how to make unique upcycled planters.  Details at https://www.facebook.com/FromtheEarth/

Workshops:

ROCKWELL MUSEUM

111 Cedar Street, Corning, NY

Funky Flowers in a Functional Vase

Have fun making funky flowers in clay, along with a small functional vase to put them in. The vases can be designed for one flower or an entire bouquet. Since the flowers will be made separately from the vase, the two parts will be “glaze glued” during the firing process. All materials are included.  Session One will focus on building and designing your flower and vase; Session Two will focus on glazing the pieces using various colors and glaze-types. The projects will be available later for pick up, after being kiln-fired. Beginners and intermediate levels welcome, age 16 and up.

My teaching philosophy involves helping people feel inspired and connected to their creative imaginations.  I encourage them in a non-judgmental way, try to expose them to as many influences as possible, help them with specific techniques that apply to their ideas, and emphasize that mistakes can be very productive. 

I teach occasional one or two day workshops from my Boston studio.  Each has a different theme or project.  I also teach workshops outside my studio at various places such as art centers, clay studios, or schools.  These usually are more related to my personal work, with discussion of how I follow a path of ideas, how my personal philosophy and motivations have evolved over many years of working in clay, demonstrations of techniques I use in my own work, and a PowerPoint presentation showing work by other artists who approach the subject of nature in a different way than I do.

Please contact me if you are interested in taking a workshop, or if you have a venue where I could present a workshop.         Here's a video of me working in the studio:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvbWoOWIWUE
